The Heckler’s Veto - Training Front Line Personnel on First Amendment Rights
After several clashes between University Police and students over demonstrations and a controversial speaker on campus, a large public university determined that front-lines personnel needed a better understanding of free speech rights, thresholds for intervention, liability risks, and ways to manage protests and counter-protests more effectively. They had trouble finding a consultant with this expertise, and then another college recommended TNG. We worked with the university to devise a set of trainings for different front-line groups, including faculty, law enforcement, residence life personnel, and student activities/involvement staff to ensure they knew boundaries and capacities. TNG used a very effective case study model, rather than a legalistic discussion, to illustrate the key points to help the various groups navigate these sophisticated and complex issues.
An Integrative Approach to Revising Policies and Procedures to Comply with Title IX
A new client, a community college system needed to revise six existing policies and procedures while implementing a comprehensive approach to addressing not just the 2020 Title IX regulations, but all forms of protected-class discrimination, in a unified process. Working from TNG’s innovative 1P2P model template, and incorporating needed changes to student, employee, and faculty handbooks as well as grievance processes, a TNG partner worked with six administrators via Zoom calls and had the completed drafts ready for the client after eight hours of efficient collaboration. The client is satisfied, compliant, and in the process of implementation.
Developing a Comprehensive Classroom Management Training Curriculum
TNG assisted a community college in the formation of a behavioral intervention team, and in the process of working with stakeholder groups, a deficiency was identified in the capacity of faculty for managing an ever-changing and increasingly complex series of student issues, disruptions, and needs. Working with the client, TNG devised a series of topical, voluntary in-service opportunities for faculty, including providing various training options to accommodate adjunct instructor schedules. The trainings focused on disruption, mental health, the BIT, disability accommodations, technology, online instruction, etc. They were so well-received that an adjunct faculty member at the college who taught full-time at the local high school recommended TNG, and the high school became a client as well.
Violence Risk Assessment Ensures Safety AND Student Success
A private college that keeps TNG on retainer for a variety of needs related to Title IX called one day in need of a Violence Risk Assessment on a suicidal student whom it believe it would need to suspend. The college’s staff had turned over, leaving the campus without an internal expert who was proficient, and a seemingly high-risk case had arisen. Within days, TNG had deployed an expert, met with the student and the student’s parents, and using TNG’s proprietary assessment tools was able to provide the college with an understanding of the risk factors and best ways to work with the student to ensure long-term safety and success. The student was not suspended and two years later, the student graduated without incident and with honors.
Department-Wide Investigation Helps College to Change Culture
A small university faced dozens of allegations of inappropriate sexual relationships in an academic department. The university commissioned TNG, which immediately assigned two partner-level investigators and two associate-level investigators. TNG designed a three-part roadmap to serve the client. Step one engaged TNG to assess the breadth of the potential misconduct and report to the Board of Trustees. Once the client had a sense of the scope of the problem, TNG was commissioned to investigate each claim thoroughly. Finally, TNG is assessing the long-term effectiveness of the university’s interventions and serving as consultants to help the university shift the culture of the department toward healthier relational norms.
