About This Course

This course is available on-demand in the NASPA Online Learning Community. You may begin the session at any time and proceed through the content at your own pace. This course is approximately 60 minutes in length.

This course is part of series entitled, Addressing Gender-Based Violence: Beyond Fundamentals.  This series of courses will allow you to take a deeper dive into specific methods for addressing gender-based violence on campus, complying with applicable laws, and moving beyond compliance to create and implement best practices that are not specifically addressed by legal documents.  Each course is designed to provide information, practical strategies, and empowering skills for you to use in designing policies, programs and systems, as well as addressing individual cases, of gender-based violence at your institution.

This course is presented in partnership with the Victim Rights Law Center.

This course will illustrate the difference between disclosure and reporting in cases of sexual violence. We will also clarify various roles on campus, who can be included in those roles and how to determine which kind of role an employee plays.  Good practices will be discussed along with practical advice on informing students of all relevant information to them in these circumstances.

This course is structured in three parts:

  • Understanding why victims come forward
  • Reporting structures for privileged employees
  • Reporting structures for confidential and responsible employees
