Learn best practices and critical skills for conducting the alternative resolution process.

Under Title IX, the Alternative Resolution Process can be an effective means for resolving complaints, including reports of sexual misconduct.

This training covers the requirements under the May 2024 Title IX Regulations for informal resolution and includes content that can be used outside the Title IX process.


The agenda includes:   

  • An overview of the regulatory requirements for conducting investigations and the practical implications of these requirements.   
  • How to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, and bias.  
  • The proper application of trauma-informed practices.  
  • Developing an investigation strategy.  
  • Party and witness interviews, evidence identification, collection, and analysis.  
  • Understanding issues of relevance and other evidentiary concerns.  
  • How to structure an investigation file and an investigation report that fairly summarizes relevant evidence.
