Campus Conduct System Assessment
Does your campus conduct system fit your campus culture and climate? Does it reflect best practices in the field? Does it successfully intertwine the campus mission with current laws and regulations? Are key players aware of their roles in the process and does everyone stay in their lane? Do you do what you say and say what you do? Many institutions are functioning within a system that isn’t optimized, or worse, never worked that well in the first place. Maybe you have policies and procedures that are unclear, or hearing panels that are lacking substantive training on complex cases. Perhaps individuals, as well as departments, aren’t clear on their role in the process or have potential conflicts-of-interest. These are common issues that The NCHERM Group helps institutions to work through on a daily basis. We focus on the practical fundamentals as well as reconnecting the conduct process with its civil rights roots to assure the equal dignity of all participants. Conduct code revision by an NCHERM Group consultant can also be incorporated into an assessment upon request, typically following the fact-finding of a site visit. Our team also provides hearing panel training that can reflect foundational or more advanced training topics.
You know that legal challenges on due process and fundamental fairness can cost institutions hundreds of thousands of dollars each year in legal fees, settlements, and judgments. You also know that The NCHERM Group has a stellar track record of helping to keep our clients out of court. Isn’t that peace of mind worth an investment in the integrity of your process now?
