Coffee and snacks will be provided.

Coordinating and Conducting Comprehensive Investigations Track: Participants will be able to investigate complaints, interview parties, and write reports while understanding the requirements of Title IX as well as the foundational elements of sexual assault dynamics, perpetrator dynamics, and how trauma affects memory and victim reactions. This track is ideal for investigators new to Oregon or to the campus context, Title IX Coordinators, campus-based advocates, and other professionals who work with campus investigation processes.

Interviewing and Documentation Intensive Track: Rooted in the foundational elements of sexual assault dynamics, perpetrator dynamics, and trauma-informed best practices, investigators will gain cutting edge skills and tools to lead trauma-informed interviews with complainants, respondents and witnesses based on techniques used by law enforcement and the military. This track is ideal for seasoned campus investigators with a solid understanding of Title IX and Oregon-specific campus dynamics, and who want to delve deep into the specific skills of interviewing and documentation.

Topics Include:

  • Sexual harassment and assault dynamics
  • Investigating consent
  • Neurobiology of trauma
  • Understanding Title IX and related laws
  • Bias and equity
  • Student rights
