Colleges and universities continue to face scrutiny regarding the effectiveness of the institutional response to sexual violence. Institutions must navigate multiple federal, state, and internal requirements while ensuring safe campus communities; adjudicating claims equitably, including providing due process to the accused; interfacing with law enforcement; and communicating effectively with campus constituents. This two-part presentation will provide timely and practical guidance to colleges and universities seeking to comply with legal obligations in the prevention, investigation, and resolution of sexual harassment and misconduct allegations.

Part II will address: 

  • Best practices in evaluating evidence and making credibility determinations in sexual violence investigations 
  • Interfacing with law enforcement 
  • Strategies for avoiding and addressing retaliation claims by victims and others
  • Considerations in defending against Title IX lawsuits by students accused of sexual misconduct
