Management Respondent Series


A three part webinar series focused on addressing respondent considerations in managing reports of sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence. Litigation trends and increased media attention show that students accused of sexual misconduct are just as likely to sue the institution as complainants.

In addition, OCR recently entered into a resolution agreement with an institution as a result of a complaint brought by a respondent.

Through this series, participants will review the legal obligations of institutions to complainants and respondents, learn about the current legal landscape in respondent litigation, assess lessons learned from OCR’s recent resolution agreement and successful litigation, and explore steps institutions are taking to ensure that the process is fair and equitable to all parties involved, including developments in respondent support services.
