In compliance with the 2020 Title IX Regulations, NSU must provide information about and access to training materials used to training those involved in the Title IX Resolution Procedures (e.g., Title IX Coordinators, investigators, decision-makers, and any person who facilitates and informal resolution process). Please be advised that the materials below reflect the mandatory reporting requirement effect August 14, 2020, and do not reflect all training received previously or training the individuals may receive for other aspects of their professional roles outside of required knowledge and skills for conducting Title IX Resolution Procedures. The Title IX regulations require that individuals receive training about:
- The definition of sexual harassment
- The scope of NSU's education program or activity
- How to conduct an investigation and grievance process, including hearings, appeals and informal resolution procedures
- How to serve impartially, including by avoiding any prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, and bias
- Decision-makers must also receive training on any technology to be used at a live hearing and on issues of relevance and evidence, including when questions and evidence about the complainant's sexual predisposition or prior sexual behavior are not relevant
- Investigators must also receive training on issues of relevance to create an investigative report that fairly summarizes relevant evidence
In addition, those individuals involved in the resolution proceedings related to sex crimes of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking, must also receive annual training on issues related to these crimes and how to conduct an investigation and hearing process that protects the safety of the victims and promotes accountability.
