Resolving Discrimination, Harassment, and Title IX Complaints

Many universities have faced legal challenges claiming those involved with resolving complaints (administrators, review committee members, hearing officers, etc.) were not properly trained or that proper policies and procedures were not followed while addressing Title IX, discrimination and harassment complaints.  On September 13, 2018, Attorney Sara G. McGrane offered three workshops at NDSU to ensure that all those who are involved in resolving discrimination, harassment complaints, including gender and disability discrimination, are properly trained when addressing these important issues.
