Fairness, Accuracy, and Access:
Why Colleges and Universities Should Conduct Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigations and Adjudications

Jeff Nolan

Jeffrey J. Nolan
Attorney at Law
Dinse Knapp McAndrew

Promising practices strongly suggest that when colleges and universities conduct sexual assault investigations and adjudications as required by Title IX, they should employ a trauma-informed approach.

While a trauma-informed approach naturally promotes access for complainants by encouraging their participation, it also promotes accuracy by enabling investigators and decision-makers to ask appropriate questions and better understand evidence that may be affected by trauma. A more accurate understanding of evidence in turn promotes fairness to all parties. When put in the appropriate context and applied properly, a trauma-informed approach benefits complainants, respondents, and institutions of higher education. We hope you can join us for a discussion of these timely, important issues.

Jeff Nolan is an attorney with Dinse Knapp McAndrew and is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts, New York, Texas, and Vermont. He has represented and advised colleges and universities for over 20 years. Jeff consults with clients and provides training throughout the United States on campus threat assessment, Title IX/Clery Act compliance, and sexual violence response-related issues.

Attendance is free, but registration is required. Registration deadline is Friday, June 17. After registering, you will receive e-mail with connection instructions. If you don't receive that e-mail (check your spam filters), contact us.

Sponsored by the National Center for Campus Public Safety with support from University of Vermont Continuing and Distance Education and the U.S. Department of Justice.
