On Tuesday, August 20th, Campus Public Safety Online welcomes three Title IX experts to present Remaining Trauma-Informed in an Era of Changing Title IX Regulations. Chantelle Cleary, director for institutional equity and Title IX coordinator at Cornell University; Scott Schneider, a partner in the Austin, Texas office of Husch Blackwell LLP; and Sam Wilmoth, Title IX education specialist at West Virginia University (WVU), will present a special 90-minute webinar covering the principles of a trauma-informed investigation, the changing regulatory environment, and the trauma-informed approach beyond investigations.
As regulations and lawsuits alter the Title IX landscape, it can be challenging for Title IX coordinators to keep up. Nevertheless, one thing remains constant: colleges and universities should do everything they can to protect their communities with both a fair investigative process and vibrant prevention education. Good faith attempts to pursue these goals are rarely at odds with the law.
This webinar is perfect for higher education professionals who take a broad view of Title IX compliance. Chantelle, Scott, and Sam will balance detailed, practical guidance with the realities of broader policy about Title IX-related issues. The instructors will help participants identify when regulatory change alters only our collective floor, encouraging them to reach for the ceiling instead. Topics to be covered include trauma-informed Title IX investigations, critical community partnerships, and coordinating Title IX training efforts on your campus.
