Following the Dear Colleague Letter
released last April, Title IX coordinator trainings have been on the rise across college campuses. Community and residential colleges have been scrambling to ensure their Title IX policy and investigations are in line with the OCR standards.
But this is only part of the solution to staying compliant. Having a qualified and well-trained Title IX coordinator allows a college or university the ability to respond to complaints, but what happens when those complaints arenít coming forward? It can be tempting to assume there is no sexual misconduct occurring at your institution, but that isnít always the case. Donít make the mistake of having a well-trained Title IX coordinator without properly training your faculty and staff to identify and report concerning behaviors.
This training will provide an in-depth look at nine different core concepts that are essential for faculty and staff to understand. Jason Ebbeling (Vice President of Student Affairs at Mitchell College) and Dr. Brian Van Brunt (Director of Counseling at Western Kentucky University) will share their observations and thoughts related to sexual misconduct and harassment. They will discuss practical case examples from a legal, psychological and administrative perspective.
In addition, they will review:
- Dangers of Discrimination
- Quid Pro Quo harassment
- Hostile Work Environment Harassment
- Retaliation Harassment
- Third Party Harassment
- Physical Behaviors
- Visual Displays
- The Problem of Intent vs. Impact
- The Problem of Humor
