T&M has the expertise schools need to promote safety and well-being. Our Sexual Misconduct Consulting & Investigations (SMCI) division, comprised of former sex crimes prosecutors, assists K-12 private and public schools, colleges and universities with various issues related to sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, sexual abuse, sexual harassment, domestic/intimate partner violence, stalking, hazing, bullying and child abuse.
T&M analyzes existing policies, procedures and protocols pertaining to all types of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, sexual abuse, and sexual harassment, domestic/intimate partner violence, stalking, hazing, bullying and child abuse, and provides recommendations for enhancement. In addition, T&M works with academic institutions to draft or revise and re-draft existing policies for enhanced safety and risk mitigation.
T&M’s subject matter experts develop and deliver customized and compelling training, education and prevention programs for students, faculty, administrators, athletic staff and school clergy.
In the event that an allegation of sexual misconduct arises involving a member of the school community, T&M engages in sensitive, discreet and skilled investigations, which include conducting interviews, gathering evidence, and preparing detailed written reports of findings in preparation for adjudication.
T&M evaluates academic institutions’ past responses to incidents or claims of sexual misconduct and provides specific and integrated steps and recommendations for improved handling of responses in the future.
No matter how developed an institution’s sexual misconduct policies, procedures and protocols are, unforeseen incidents can still arise that leave staff and administrators at a loss about how to proceed in a manner that best protects the school community. T&M provides 24/7 expert on-call support for school personnel and their attorneys.
T&M serves as an outside, independent monitor to evaluate a school’s ongoing compliance with its own protocols, procedures and efforts to reduce sexual misconduct on campus.
