INFORMATION
Training Overview

Support witnesses with new Title IX investigation policies. Update protocols when adhering to new 2020 regulations.

In a time of #MeToo and growing concern about victims not being supported, it is time to re-evaluate your Title IX investigations. In 2020, new regulations were implemented with stringent standards and guidelines for conducting Title IX investigations. When updating your policies to incorporate these requirements, you should ensure that investigators support witnesses and approach their conversations from a trauma-informed perspective.

Failing to protect witnesses sufficiently could result in costly litigation, damage to your institution’s reputation, and damage to vulnerable students.
