Workplace investigations in the university and college context are unique. Investigators are frequently confronted with faculty to faculty complaints, the challenges of students as witnesses and complainants, as well as anonymous complaints. These unique situations demand a high level of specialized skill from universities and investigators. This training session will closely examine the demands and challenges that investigations present in the university and college context, and allow for a deep dive into possible solutions.

This interactive training session will cover:
