Plan and Prepare to Mitigate Institutional Liability

Whether it’s to stand against hate incidents, offensive interactions that took place in a classroom, political views related to current events or a speaker slated to come to campus, protests continue to happen on campuses nationwide. And we continue to see the intensity of the student voice is much greater today because of social media.

Administrators continue to grapple with how to manage and respond to student protests and demonstrations. In just 90 minutes our two experts will engage you in a discussion that will include:

  • Proactive planning and interacting with groups
  • Ideas for response procedures in the event that a protest occurs
  • Student participant safety during an event
  • Anticipating and managing counter-protest activities
  • Multi-day sit-in challenges and response actions
  • Building security considerations
  • Maintaining other campus activities while protest is under way
  • The role of social media
  • Expectations of faculty, staff and employees during student protests

Learn how to allow your students to express themselves in a way that is mutually beneficial and peaceful, while still ensuring that campus policies are followed and the community is kept safe.
