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!

The TNG Consulting Program is an annual package that can be built around institutional initiatives or designed to provide risk management services on a variety of topics across the campus community.
