At the core of a robust compliance program lies a transparent policy development process and thoughtful training programs. Our team is experienced in all facets of policy development and training, particularly in high-risk compliance areas.
We assist clients in establishing a streamlined policy development process, balancing optimal stakeholder involvement and efficiency. Our experience extends to designing comprehensive training programs to ensure the effective implementation of policies. Additionally, we provide support in developing policies in specific areas, either independently or as part of our comprehensive compliance program audits.
We provide a comprehensive range of training services, with a focus on high-profile areas such as non-discrimination and anti-harassment, Title IX, employment practices, hazing investigations, and disability laws. Our expertise extends to critical yet often overlooked areas like emotional support animals, crisis management, and student conduct hearing procedures.
With regard to Title IX and civil rights training, our programs are designed for investigators and adjudicators who undergo annual training. Our highly interactive sessions cover trauma-informed investigations, effective interview techniques for evidence collection, and addressing questions on consent and incapacitation. Experiential exercises allow teams to apply theoretical knowledge.
Our popular two-day Title IX training program includes hands-on exercises and ample room for participant debate. All training programs can be tailored to include timely topics, covering key laws, recent case law, investigative processes, prohibited conduct, harassment and discrimination, confidentiality, reporting obligations, trauma impact, and trauma-informed practices. Customization options cover diverse subjects like consent, incapacitation, credibility disputes, sanctioning, crisis management, emotional support animals, Clery Act reporting, and more.
Additionally, our experienced student conduct investigators offer full-day and half-day Student Conduct Hearing Panel training. Custom-designed sessions can focus on specific policies or provide general training for multiple institutions simultaneously, reducing costs. Topics include question formulation, credibility evaluation, relevance determination, evidence-based decision-making, and advanced investigator training for in-depth exploration of challenging topics.
