Know Your Role – Student Affairs Professionals Mar 23, 2016 1:00 PM EDT

Please join Courtney Bullard on March 23, 2016 for the next webinar in the Know Your Role series dedicated to student affairs professionals. Breakdowns following reports of sexual misconduct often occur because of confusion or lack of understanding of administrator’s roles in institutional compliance. The Know Your Role series addresses the individual roles of campus administrators in institutional compliance with Title IX, providing practical guidance to Title IX Coordinators, Student Affairs professionals, investigators, athletics administrators, Human Resources professionals, academic administrators, campus security and Presidents.

This one hour webinar is dedicated to discussing the role of student affairs professionals in institutional compliance with Title IX and related laws and regulations. Student affairs professionals have a great deal of communication with students and often wear multiple hats. Outside of students, these professionals are often contacted by other parties involved in a situation implicated by Title IX – parents, attorneys, police, advocates and so on. The role of a student affairs professional is crucial to institutional compliance, and one that often is overlooked and misunderstood. Courtney will provide some practical advice to ensure that a student affairs professional understands his or her role in compliance, from a report of sexual misconduct to its disposition.

Courtney is a former University system attorney with over 10 years of experience in preventing and successfully handling Title IX claims in higher education. She worked hand-in-hand with student affairs and Behavioral Intervention Teams in providing legal advice in anticipation of litigation and in the midst of OCR investigations over the course of her 15 year career.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
