Campus Title IX policies addressing sexual misconduct are grounded in consent. These policies look closely at whether the parties mutually agreed to engage in sexual activity and how consent was communicated and obtained.

In this two-part online series, T9 faculty Liz DeChellis and Jennifer Doughty explore this complicated landscape and dive into the challenges surrounding analyzing consent.

In Part 1, participants learn best practices for gathering facts around what took place between the parties including:

  • Framing trauma-informed questions without leading
  • Asking about verbal and non-verbal communications
  • Establishing whether consent was provided for each escalation of sexual activity

Part 2 examines ways that alcohol, drugs, sleep, or other factors may impact consent including:

  • Complainant’s capacity to understand the fact, nature or extent of the sexual activity
  • Differences between intoxication and incapacitation
  • Whether Respondent could have reasonably known if Complainant was incapacitated

This two-part program benefits Title IX coordinators, investigators, hearing officers, student conduct administrators, and other Title IX professionals who address student complaints. Register now for one, or both, of these sessions.
