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.
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.
A Blowup Becomes a Model for Reform
A state university was experiencing a complete implosion of an academic department based on infighting and a highly politicized history of fractiousness. The university considered the department to be at risk of failure and had tried everything. But, two divided and deeply ingrained power structures resisted all efforts at reform. TNG conducted a two-stage process, first engaging in surveying and focus groups to allow for anonymous reporting and a true assessment of the root causes of the problems. Based on an understanding of the toxic dynamics, TNG then made recommendations for personnel changes and for mediation. TNG brought in a skilled mediation capacity, and worked for two months to broker peace, identify shared goals, ensure a lasting détente, and get the department working as a team. Four years later, the reform efforts have been sustained by new leadership, and the department remains functional.
A Charter School Association Was Worried About the Title IX Regulations
An association of charter schools had engaged TNG for all of its members’ investigation needs. When the 2020 Title IX regulations were released in May of 2020, the association contacted TNG with concern about how the new regulations would impact on the investigation of complaints. TNG worked to reassure the client that by the end of April, in addition to all the Title IX training they had received previously, all forty (40) of TNG’s professional investigators would have a two-day training on the new regulations, how they impact on investigations, and best practices moving forward. The client was reassured. Few firms can boast the advantages of being both leading practitioners and trainers in the Title IX space. This is a key TNG advantage.
