Rave Mobile Safety, the leading provider of software solutions for individual, group and public safety, invites higher education executives and campus police to register for its informative Webinar to be held March 29 at 2 p.m. EDT, entitled “Hitting the Moving Target - The Federal Government's Expectations for Sexual Assault Resolution on Campus.”
The Keynote speaker Dr. John Wesley Lowery, an associate professor of Student Affairs in Higher Education, Indiana University of Pennsylvania and author on topics related to student affairs and higher education, will examine:
- The Office of Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education resolution of Title IX complaints against several institutions of higher education.
