Join us for Campus Response to Sexual Assault to learn the basic current requirements (Title IX and Clery Act) and best practices for managing sexual violence cases on college campuses. Training is offered as a one-day workshop or two-day training for law enforcement first responders and campus administrators or investigators.
Joint training by the National Criminal Justice Training Center and the Title IX Center The increasing national spotlight on sexual assault on college campuses has caught some universities off guard, putting law enforcement agencies (both campus and local) at the center of controversy concerning the response, investigation and reporting of such cases. To add more complexity, federal law governing sexual assault case management in educational institutions is rapidly evolving as Congress, courts and federal agencies all weigh in with various concerns and regulations.
During the one-day session, you will learn best practices for prevention, interviewing complainants, conducting investigations, and finalizing reports. You will gain an understanding of the reality of sexual assault on campus, the psychological and physical effects of trauma, legal rights and definitions of consent. You will develop prototypes for campus-wide protocols to tailor to your own individual campuses. During the two-day session, you will cover one-day content and also have the opportunity to work through an actual case with campus administrative colleagues to identify response strategies and resources that should be used in your own campus investigations.
