Can the Title IX Coordinator assist with questions if approached by the Decision Maker or should they stay out of that part of the process
Diane Russo
41:17
Can the Coordinator also fill the role of Investigator?
Michelle Giacomino

I find it is helpful to ask about what medications they make take, since some interact negativelyl with alcohol, etc. Is this something to be avoided in the future?
Mariella Toribio

I think anytime you ask questions that could be problematic (i.e. victim blaming), it's important to give context before asking the question. For example, I'm going to ask some questions about what you were wearing the night of the incident because it will be helpful for me to understand... Or I'm going to ask some questions about substances you consumed because it will help me understand your level of capacity...

Many TIXCs have certainly seen "stalking" complaints involving Respondents who may be on the Autism spectrum.
Dennis Middendorff
01:03:18
Should an investigator examine complainant's behavior before and after the alleged event to look for changes that may corroborate the accusation?
Tiera Mason
01:05:12
We often get delayed Title IX reports, is there a best practice in terms of determining credibility when a respondent states they cant remember details or specifics? I have had respondents and sometimes complainants say I don't remember touching her there, I don't remember if we kissed, I don't remember performing x act, etc. Especially when we are adjudicating cases that have incident dates a year or two prior.

FYI DM, SANE examiner informed me that everyone's trauma response is different and many times doesn't indicate anything.
Dennis Middendorff
01:07:09
Victims frequently don't report immediately, but often tell someone, friend, family member etc. This adds corroboration.
Anthony Davis
01:16:30
In your experience, what works best in a Title IX Hearing? A panel or single decision maker? Also, should police presence be at the hearing or should they be in close proximity?
Anthony Davis
01:19:11
Yes..
Eric A Kidwell
01:21:18
We've always used a panel. We've just pared it down to three.
Anthony Davis
01:22:37
Great, thank you.
Ryan Thompson
01:22:40
Also, for us externals, the other institutional panel members can often help educate us about the school's prior sanctioning history.
Diane Russo
01:22:44
Are names of investigators and decision makers required to be posted for public view?
Meaghan Kauffman
01:30:38
We have a higher level admin making sanctioning decisions once a panel of mid-level admin has decided responsibility. Any considerations for this arrangement?
Dan Pedersen
01:31:15
In your opinions, If the decision determines that the complainant falsified accusations/information, are sanctions towards that individual appropriate?
Sarah Garner
01:31:18
Meaghan, I thought the regulations require the DM to make both determinations....
Dennis Middendorff
01:31:19
Victims frequently suggest lenience due to some outside pressures. At what point do you default to campus safety over victim wishes?
Meaghan Kauffman
01:32:24
We were advised that they could be separate people but the written determination cannot be finalized until both decisions (responsibility/sanction) are complete.
