The Use of Restorative Justice in Sexual Misconduct Cases

Public Policy Division Sexual and Relationship Violence Prevention, Education, and Response Mid-Level Senior Level
June 17, 2020   |  3:00 PM - 4:00 PM David Karp Erik Wessel Kaaren Williamsen

When students violate sexual misconduct policies, campuses primarily rely on suspensions and expulsions, paralleling the criminal justice system’s use of incarceration. These solutions are based on stigmatization and separation; however, unlike those working in the criminal justice system, student affairs administrators typically espouse an educational and developmental approach to misconduct rather than a strictly punitive one. The new Title IX rules open the possibility of alternative resolution procedures, of which, restorative justice is the most evidence-based and student-centered alternative approach available to institutions. This recorded briefing will explore this option and the most responsible ways of implementing RJ in sexual misconduct cases.
