Are your institution’s disciplinary proceedings and appeals for sexual misconduct complaints conducted by properly trained adjudicators? When a complaint is brought to your institution’s attention, do you have confidence that the matter will be adjudicated effectively, sensitively, and in full-compliance with its obligations?
Disciplinary procedures at higher-education institutions must be conducted by officials who have received annual training on issues related to sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking and on conducting a disciplinary process that protects the safety of the parties and promotes accountability.
Likewise, Title IX requires institutions to provide regular training to individuals involved in their disciplinary process that must address: the effects of trauma, the proper standard of review, consent, the role of drugs or alcohol in the ability to give consent, and more.
To ensure compliance with these training requirements, join us for this three hour Trauma-Informed Training for Adjudicators and Appeals Panels. This training is appropriate for officials responsible for making initial determinations or deciding appeals, as well as Title IX coordinators and deputy coordinators.
