Confidential resources, first responders, and campus security personnel play an important role in an institution’s efforts to comply with its Title IX obligations. Individuals in these roles are frequently on the front lines when it comes to receiving information related to sexual misconduct and harassment allegations. Given the significant recent changes to the legal landscape, heightened focus on enforcement of Title IX, and increasing complexity of sexual misconduct matters, it is more important than ever that your confidential resources, first responders, and campus security personnel are well-trained on their obligations under Title IX and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) and that they understand the impact trauma has on those who are the subject of sexual misconduct proceedings.
Join us for a two-hour training specifically designed for confidential resources, first responders, and campus security personnel. The benefits of our training extend beyond simply satisfying your institution’s training requirements. Our training is conducted by Higher Education attorneys who regularly advise institutions on all aspects of the sexual misconduct process, from policy drafting through the final resolution of sexual misconduct matters. Because these attorneys also have extensive experience investigating and adjudicating sexual misconduct cases for institutions, this training incorporates first-hand, real world experience and provides practical guidance on navigating the complex issues related to sexual misconduct matters.
