Investigation Training for Campus Sexual Misconduct Complaints and Other Civil Rights Grievances

This half-day training will convey best practices for investigation of student and employee civil rights grievances, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, hate acts, and other discriminatory actions.


Typically, colleges and universities rely on campus law enforcement, HR and student affairs (or student conduct) administrators to investigate civil rights complaints. This training will help you to ensure these key employees are well-trained to investigate civil rights violations. This training will also offer a model for investigating student civil rights complaints that does not rely on law enforcement, but empowers a strong student affairs investigation model. Campus sexual assault complaints are so difficult, in part because many colleges address them as conduct matters, to be resolved by a board or panel. These complaints, and similar offenses like stalking and relationship violence are conduct matters, but also potential civil rights violations. Therefore, they can be resolved like other civil rights violations, through an investigation model. You'll find this model helps to address these complaints quickly, more thoroughly, and with less anguish than the adversarial model colleges and universities have traditionally used.


The topics of this training include:

Who should investigate?
What background and skill sets should investigators have?
How does team investigation work?
Building rapport
Developing a witness list
Flowcharting witness connections
Strategizing interviews
Victim-sensitivity concerns
When to alert/charge the accused individual
Policy application
Applying the standard of proof
Analysis of evidence
Documenting the investigation process
Preparing a report of findings
What to do with findings
The role of the investigator in hearings

This training will provide all registrants with an investigation best practices tip sheet, comprehensive investigation model materials, and a civil rights/sexual misconduct model investigation protocol.

Description: 

Major advances have been made in the assessment and treatment of traumatic stress in the past 20 years.  Despite these advances, the vast majority of those affected by traumatic stress still do not receive any type of services or care.  For many, no services are available.   Others are reluctant to seek care or do not find the services offered appealing.  In addition, treatments are not effective for some who receive them.  The effectiveness of services or clinical care may be limited in our conceptualizations, research methods and practices do not match the clinical realities for some trauma survivors.  This meeting will provide a forum to discuss innovative strategies for outreach, assessment, treatments and programs that will enable us to deliver services in a wider variety of contexts and reach more trauma survivors.  A shift in focus from mental disorder and diagnosis to the promotion of mental health can help reduce stigma and facilitate wider dissemination of information and tools to promote recovery from traumatic stress.  Innovations in conceptualization, measurement and clinical methods may help us better understand the diversity of responses to traumatic stress and tailor our services and treatments to groups and individuals with different post-traumatic presentations.
