Featuring National expert Brett A. Sokolow of the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management.



Responding to Sexual Assault/Harassment

Workshop for staff and faculty
10 am - noon
Grace Covell Hall

Designed for faculty/staff department chairs, assistant deans, supervisors, coaches and others who might receive reports of sexual assault and harassment. Topics include roles and protocol, recognizing problematic conduct, intervention, reporting, confidentiality, the rights of accused students, and the special vulnerability/responsibility of students such as Greeks and athletes.

Panelists include representatives from Victim Advocacy, Human Resources, Public Safety, Judicial Affairs and the Women's Center of San Joaquin County.



Investigation Training for Campus Sexual Misconduct Complaints and Other Civil Rights Grievances

2 - 5 pm
Grace Covell Hall

A half-day training on best practices for investigation of student and employee civil rights grievances, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, hate acts, and other discriminatory actions. The interactive session will include role modeling activities and a mock investigation with interviews and findings. Registrants will receive a tip sheet for investigation best practices, comprehensive investigation model materials, and a civil rights/sexual misconduct model investigation protocol.



A Conversation About Consent

With Brett Sokolow
6:30 - 8:30 pm
Don and Karen DeRosa University Center

An advanced program on sexual communication. Does consent have an expiration date? Can consent be withdrawn? How? When must consent be given-before, during or after sexual contact? How is it communicated?

Participants will learn how to work together to define and understand consent, to go beyond "No means No," and how to support one another in making positive choices. Intervention can make all the difference between a crime and safety. Be empowered to act to make a difference - between life and death, between right and wrong.

This event is sponsored by NASPA Region VI, Human Resources, Athletics and Student Life.
