Higher Education  Title IX 

As institutions build sexual misconduct response teams in the face of shifting regulation and guidance, they must train investigators to respond to complaints while meeting institutional obligations and protecting the rights of all involved.

Team members new to investigating complaints of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and stalking need a foundational understanding of the requirements of Title IX and the Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization (VAWA), as well as opportunities to build important investigation skills. 

We invite those on your campus new to sexual misconduct investigations to join members of Husch Blackwell’s Higher Education legal team for a full-day workshop designed to build understanding and experience related to conducting sexual misconduct investigations.


  • Institutional obligations under Title IX and VAWA, including current legal guidance and an overview of anticipated legal developments
  • Investigation planning 
  • Interviewing techniques 
  • Sexual violence, domestic/dating violence and stalking, including consent, incapacitation, disability and trauma-informed considerations 
  • Evidence gathering 
  • Weighing evidence and credibility 
  • Report-writing and recordkeeping
