When students are found responsible for violating institutional sexual misconduct policies, identifying appropriate sanctions can raise unique challenges. Whether imposing conditions for return from suspension or permitting a student to remain enrolled, sanctioning bodies should be informed by the research and best practices of those who work with individuals who engage in sexual misconduct.
Join us on May 30th to hear from experts on sexual violence prevention and assessment. This session will include:
- An overview of the prevalence of perpetration and some of the responses to these behaviors
- What we know and don’t know about young adults who commit sexual misconduct
- How we can use this information to inform our practice
