Title IX Investigation Bootcamp for Colleges and Universities: Comprehensive Training in Three Sessions, in three 90-minute sessions, offers a comprehensive approach to understanding Title IX investigations from start to finish. Topics include:
- Analyzing and Addressing Student Sexual Harassment Complaints in Colleges and Universities
- Planning and Conducting Student Sexual Harassment Investigations in Colleges and Universities
- Finalizing the Investigation and Addressing Post-Investigation Issues in Colleges and Universities
Each college and university must designate at least one employee as a Title IX Coordinator and must be committed to providing the Title IX Coordinator with appropriate training. Such training must include how to address complaints of sexual harassment and sexual assault between students and how to conduct a prompt and equitable investigation into such complaints. With increased attention on such investigations on every college and university campus, it is important for Title IX Coordinators to have a thorough knowledge of every aspect of such investigations, including interviewing witnesses, assessing evidence, working with law enforcement, writing reports, and conducting hearings. Also, on November 16, 2018, the Department of Education released its
proposed Title IX regulations addressing sexual harassment, which will
be covered in these sessions.
The Title IX Investigation Bootcamp for Colleges and Universities: Comprehensive Training in Three Sessions will provide this training in an engaging and informative way, from the start of the investigation to any end determination as a result of any appeal. This three-part presentation focuses on important aspects of an investigation under Title IX and other federal laws, while using actual case scenarios, best practices, and frequently asked questions on these topics. This course will place you in the best possible position to meet your institutional compliance obligations under Title IX and leave you with practical solutions to address these very difficult and demanding issues on campus.
