Event description
A Training Seminar for Hearing Panels and Officers of Title IX Hearings to be held on October 29, 2019 at 321 N. Clark St., Chicago, IL

About this Event

Title IX experts Debbie Osgood and Rebecca Veidlinger have teamed up to offer a day-long training session for your hearing officers and hearing panels. The trainers have decades of experience in this area. They have worked with colleges and universities across the country on Title IX issues - providing training, conducting investigations, serving as or advising hearing officers, drafting sexual misconduct policies and procedures, conducting comprehensive Title IX compliance audits, and more.

The courts and federal government have spoken!

With the heightened scrutiny of campus sexual misconduct processes, it is more important than ever that institutions' hearing officers and hearing panel members be well-trained on issues of sexual violence, due process, and equitable hearing procedures. The legal and reputational risks in this area are enormous. Is your institution ready for this important responsibility?

This training is designed to give your hearing officers or hearing panel members – student conduct, Title IX, and human resources staff, administrators, faculty members and others -- the skills and information they need to conduct fair, impartial and respectful hearings.

The training will cover:

  • Role of the hearing officer or hearing panel
  • Challenges faced by hearing officers and hearing panels
  • Reviewing the investigation report
  • How to conduct orderly hearings
  • Determining the appropriate scope of cross examination
  • Weighing the evidence and making credibility assessments
  • Making evidence-based conclusions
  • Sanctions considerations
  • Writing the findings report

The trainers will also provide templates for hearing opening comments and the findings report. The training day culminates in a mock hearing in which attendees participate in questioning parties, weighing evidence, assessing credibility, and outlining a findings letter.
