A Campus-Wide Response to Sexual Misconduct: Best Practices
Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 1:00:00 PM ET – 2:30:00 PM ET
Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes
This webinar highlights the dynamics of campus sexual assault that may be specific to, or heightened in the context of, a college or university setting. Additionally, the presenter discusses best practices in three areas of response to sexual misconduct on campus – encouraging reporting and use of supportive resources; resolution practices (including investigative/adjudicatory processes, adaptable resolution processes, and coordination with law enforcement); and interim and post-resolution measures. The webinar integrates information about the legal framework within which institutions must operate (e.g., Title IX, VAWA, Clery, case law, state laws, etc) with the nuances of supporting students and creating a safe and respectful campus climate.
