Resolving Discrimination, Harassment, and Title IX Complaints

Many universities have faced legal challenges claiming those involved with resolving investigations (administrators, investigators, conduct officers, etc.) were not properly trained or proper investigative techniques were not followed while addressing title IX, discrimination and harassment complaints.  In September 2017, Sara G. McGrane offered three workshops on federal laws and university policies related to equal opportunity and Title IX, as well as the investigative process that occurs when the institution receives complaints about discrimination, harassment, Title IX, and retaliation. Below are the materials McGrane covered in her presentations. 

Workshop for Cabinet Members and Deans - Materials.

Workshop for Chairs, Heads, Directors, Academic Leaders - Materials.

Workshop for Investigators and Review Committee Members - Materials.
