      Jason Laker is an excellent educator and anti-sexist male activist. His educational style is one in which he creates safety for diverse audience participants. His presentations and workshops are interactive and thought-provoking around hard-to-discuss topics such as men and masculinities, and sexual violence. In addition, his consulting skills are comprehensive — he allowed us to utilize his time and talent in a variety of ways — touching the lives and enhancing the knowledge of faculty, staff, students, and community members.

    • Santa Monica College

      Santa Monica College found Brian Van Brunt to be so knowledgeable and compelling at a NaBITA certification course that we have brought him to campus multiple times.  Not only has he worked with our BIT team on a number of issues related to crisis prevention and threat assessment, but we included him in a recent faculty and staff professional development day to address classroom management issues and dealing with dangerous and disruptive students.  His workshops were well attended and received raved reviews.  Brian is a true expert in the field who is an engaging and conversant presenter!

      Having Dr. Van Brunt spend two-days on-campus training our CARE Team provided the perfect springboard for the launch of our program. After spending months planning the implementation, Dr. Van Brunt was able to customize an intensive training to meet the specific needs our team, building our confidence and reinforcing best practices to get our team off to a strong start.

    • College of the Holy Cross

      I've worked with Brett in the past, and will again in the future.  Saunie and Scott's training was great, informative and well developed.  The best thing about the NCHERM training is that they are always ahead of the curve and dead on with trends.  What I learn I take back to campus implement and when it is considered best practice a year or two down the line I get to shine.  There are so few of us on a campus dealing with these issues it is great to hear from such experienced folks.   Thank you for the work you do.  The fee is fair and compared to what take-aways there are at national conferences, a real bargain.

    • Flathead Valley Community College

      I find Dr. Van Brunt to be a valuable resource when it comes to behavioral intervention and threat assessment. Not only does he provide excellent, first-hand insight into the process of BIT work, he is also very approachable when it comes to needing strategies or advice on how to further strengthen the work we are doing with our campus BIT.  His willingness to travel far and wide to deliver training and education on this topic is impressive.

      It has been wonderful to work with NCHERM around issues of Clery Act compliance. The knowledge and understanding of the reporting and other requirements of the Act that NCHERM brings to the table have enabled us to focus on the spirit of the law—ensuring that we are working effectively to make our campus as safe as it can be.

    • Grand Canyon University

      GCU recently went through the Conflict Resolution Training with Matt Gregory and it really allowed our department to practice their skills and prepare them for dealing with conflict resolution for this upcoming year.   Matt was very encouraging when it came to our conflict resolution process and a lot of what he taught was what we were doing but gave us more ownership over our process.  Many of the RD's felt this was great practice for them, especially our new hires.  Day two was very practical because we spend the day working through the process. Overall, it was encouraging to hear that we have a strong conflict resolution process in place!

    • Lewis & Clark College

      NCHERM's services have been invaluable as we have worked to craft sexual misconduct policies that are truly effective. Their guidance and services have resulted in a more comprehensive approach to sexual misconduct and has made it much easier for us to adjudicate cases expeditiously and fairly. NCHERM also assisted us in refining our entire Code of Conduct, a review process that I am confident makes our approach to disciplinary matters even more educational and effective.

    • Athletics

      As an Athletic Director who has worked at all levels of collegiate sports, Scott's advice and counsel through the trickiest and highest profile of cases was the most practical and valuable I could have hoped for. His ability to understand, navigate, and explain situations is without parallel.

      S. Beverly
    • Concordia University Texas

      Our partnership with Scott Lewis has been invaluable to this institution over the last several years.  Scott's unique perspective from both the legal side and the Student Services side has provided us with practical, real-life and real-time advice that has been very beneficial to us at all levels of the University as we seek to improve our process.  He is both knowledgeable and likeable and relates well across all constituents - faculty, staff, students and administrators.

      As a result of our partnership with Scott and NCHERM, we have completely revised and improved our Code of Conduct and Conduct Process and made improvements to our Behavioral Intervention Team process.  His presentation to students on alcohol was one of our top rated presentations that semester.   Faculty, more than a year later, still talk about the lessons they learned from him in regards to classroom management and BIST team protocols. He has worked with us on issues as diverse as training our Conduct Hearing Boards; participating in discussions on Admissions staff salaries; providing guidance around policies and protocols related to Suicide and Student Death and Involuntary Medical Withdrawals; and providing immediate guidance for real-time student discipline issues as they develop.

    • Amherst College

      I had the pleasure of working with NCHERM Partner Saunie Schuster at two institutions. While at Amherst College, Saunie trained our Title IX Administrators, as well as students, faculty, and staff with various roles in the student conduct process. Saunie's training provided hearing board members a space to think critically about their responsibility in making decisions on serious policy violations by using interactive case studies and challenging them on appropriate questioning and decision-making. By bringing her to campus for two days, we had the opportunity to invite colleagues from across campus to attend presentations on Title IX, sexual harassment compliance and reporting responsibilities, model hearing processes, and a conversation on consent with the students, and the reviews were rave. Saunie revealed her expertise, energy, and commitment to helping Amherst further develop skills and best practices for student conduct procedures, and we are excited to continue to work with her in the future. On a personal note, she has also been an inspiration to me as I have watched her make a difference on campuses where I had primary responsibilities for student conduct. Thanks, Saunie!

      Brian Van Brunt has conducted multiple trainings on our campus, which is a Southern California Community College of over 20,000 students.  Not only did he provide our Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) with the full NaBITA Certification course, but he also customized a one-day program for all staff and faculty based on his book, "A Faculty Guide To Addressing Disruptive and Dangerous Behavior."  Because of his mental health background, Brian is an excellent trainer for community college groups that face a lot of behavioral problems on campus that are rooted in students' mental health issues.  He is an engaging speaker who uses humor kindly and appropriately to lighten some of the difficult situations that BITs face.  He is relevant, real, and above all compassionate.

      My colleagues and I attended a Hazing Investigator Training at Quinnipiac University with Gentry McCreary and it was worth every penny!  Bringing our co-workers from Fraternity & Sorority Life was highly beneficial for our Conduct/Greek Life partnership.  As a direct result of the training, we are establishing a new Investigation Policy and Procedure and are working on incorporating new material in our New Member Educator training.

      Scott Lewis brings a unique mix of expertise and practice to the table.  Scott's knowledge of higher education law paired with his experience in both the classroom and in student affairs provide him with great credibility on the subject of risk management in a higher education setting.  Participants in a recent workshop commented that his riveting stories brought the subject to life in a way that will positively impact their work in the future. I believe my colleagues left the sessions both enlightened and empowered.
