Also learn about student-on-student claims and how these should be addressed by faculty and administrators. This workshop is geared especially for faculty, deans, department heads, staff, and Student Affairs professionals, to help assure compliance with Title IX, proper reporting, and appropriate responses, including how to deal with discomfort and distress, when a situation is disclosed to you.

      Brett Sokolow, founder and president of the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management (NCHERM), provides nationwide consulting, seminars, training and publications on: Sexual Assault/Harassment; Judicial Affairs; Campus Security; Hazing; and Problem Drinking/Drugs.
