This course provides foundational knowledge and skills for civil rights investigators, deputies and Title IX Coordinators/Administrators who perform and/or oversee campus investigations. The primary focus is mastering investigation of campus sexual misconduct and sexual harassment.
Level One is our most basic training offering for civil rights investigators, deputies and Title IX Coordinators looking to acquire the fundamental skills necessary to conduct investigations of sexual misconduct in schools and colleges. This training meets the required training mandates of Title IX and VAWA Section 304 for participants, whether you are a full-time investigator or have investigation responsibilities on top of other duties. No one likes to think of themselves as needing basic training, but we generally find that our registrants self-select into trainings that are a level too high for their current understanding. Good practice rests on solid foundations, and you need those fundamental elements. Attend this training if you are either an inexperienced investigator, have not been trained before, or want to solidify your fundamentals. You’ll walk away from this training with an understanding of the legal underpinnings of Title IX and VAWA Section 304, as well as useful templates, practical rubrics and the key tools of the professional civil rights investigator. ATIXA expects that professional investigators will attend 2-3 of our two-day courses over time to achieve full competence.
In this course you will learn:
• Legal Basis for Title IX Liability
• Intersection of Title VII and Title IX in Investigations
• Due Process Myopia as a Legacy of Dixon vs. Alabama
• Title IX Era — Equity By and Through the Process
• Overview of The Civil Rights Investigation and Grievance Model – 10 Steps
• Title IX Coordinator Oversight
• Standard of Proof
• The Force, Capacity, Consent Construct
• Basic Interview Skills
