Training

The Title IX Response Team will receive training on the definition of Sexual Harassment under Title IX and its implementing regulations; the scope of the University's Education Program or Activity; how to conduct an investigation; the Grievance Procedures; hearings; appeals; Informal Resolution; and how to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, and bias. Investigators will also receive training on issues of relevance to create an investigative report that fairly summarizes relevant evidence. Decision-makers will also receive training on any technology to be used at a live hearing and on issues of relevance of questions and evidence, including when questions and evidence about the Complainant's sexual predisposition or prior sexual behavior are not relevant. Materials used to train the Title IX Response Team will not rely on sex stereotypes and will promote impartial investigations and adjudications of Formal Complaints of Sexual Harassment.
