Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Institute
In the Not Alone report, the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault charged the National Center for Campus Public Safety (NCCPS) to develop a Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication curriculum that includes Title IX training for campus officials. To meet this mandate, we worked with nationally-recognized subject matter experts in the fields of sexual and gender-based violence investigations, Title IX, the Clery Act, victim's advocacy, student conduct, and psychology to develop and deliver this groundbreaking curriculum.
After rigorous pilot programming and fine-tuning, and our first annual conference in Washington, DC in July 2016, the NCCPS is pleased to announce the launch of our public regional offerings of this critical curriculum. The curriculum includes modules on 15 topics from institutional obligations to self-care. Learn more about these topics in the module synopses. Leading the Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Institute (NCCPS Institute) is the NCCPS’s core faculty of nine subject matter experts from around the country, and twenty-six individually selected instructors.

Purpose and Objectives:
To provide college and university administrators involved in investigating and adjudicating sexual misconduct cases information and resources necessary to conduct trauma-informed investigations in line with evolving practices. NCCPS Institute objectives include:
- Training administrators how to conduct fair and balanced Title IX investigation and adjudication processes for all parties;
- Explaining the intricacies and crossovers of Title IX, the Clery Act, criminal investigations, and institutional obligations;
- Identifying the effects of trauma and how trauma impacts victims and others involved in investigations; and
- Identifying and applying industry evolving practices to conduct a trauma-informed Title IX investigation from disclosure and first response to adjudication.
The NCCPS Institute curriculum design allows for individuals and teams to learn together and is intended for campus officials involved in the investigation and adjudication processes at institutions of higher education, in addition to campus partners. This may include:
|Title IX coordinators||Administrative investigators|
|Hearing board members||Student conduct professionals|
|Appeals board members||Student affairs professionals|
|Residential life staff||Human resources personnel|
|Deans of students||Advocates|
|Legal counsel||Campus safety and law enforcement personnel|
While not specifically designed to meet the needs of criminal investigators, we encourage colleges and universities to send a representative from their law enforcement or campus safety agency.
