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.
Crisis Communications Turn Around a Hot-Button Situation
A long-term client was suddenly facing online anonymous allegations of cover-up and mishandling of serious sex offenses by students. The Title IX Coordinator was facing public condemnation, the president was taking heat, and local media had picked up the story. The college’s vice president for administration and its media relations coordinator reached out to TNG for a quick tutorial on FERPA, to be clear on what they could say and what they could not. In the course of the phone conversation, it became clear to the consultant that the strategy the college was using was too defensive. The partner offered a different approach to consider, and thereafter TNG was engaged to partner with the college on a collaborative communication strategy that helped to turn the adverse publicity around and eventually quelled it.
Serving as Hearing Panelists for Formal Title IX Complaints
A private college attended a mock hearing training that showed what hearings would look like under the 2020 Title IX regulations. Coming out of that training, the college contacted TNG to say that they had no one on staff who could chair such a hearing, and they had admired the way the TNG consultants managed the hearing during the mock event. As a result, TNG and the client signed a flat-fee agreement so that TNG experts would be on-call whenever the college needed a hearing panel chair. Over the course of the fall 2020 semester, the client used TNG to chair two hearings, and had the reassurance of having a knowledgeable, experienced, steady hand as the kinks in new procedures and regulations were worked out.
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.
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.
