Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act & Title IX: Role and Responsibilities of Faculty and Staff

April 22, 2014

Noon-1:30 p.m.
Friday, April 25, 2014
Clark A206

Join the Women and Gender Advocacy Center, Support and Safety Assessment, and Conflict Resolution & Student Conduct Services to explore how federal legislation and guidance influence ways in which sexual misconduct cases are addressed at CSU. There will be time for Q&A for faculty and staff to better understand their role if a student discloses an account of interpersonal violence.


Speakers for the event include:

Kelly Humphrey grew up in Grand Junction, and recently finished her doctoral education in Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership at the University of Northern Colorado. At UNC, she obtained professional experience in areas of social justice advocacy, student conduct administration, and conflict resolution, and was the assistant dean of students for two years before transitioning to Colorado State University last July. Currently, she serves as the associate director of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct Services at CSU, where she primarily manages the discipline process for students living in the residence halls. With several years of experience working with sexual misconduct cases in student discipline processes, Humphrey enjoys serving as a resource to campus constituents as they navigate managing these complex cases.         

George Tsai is the assistant director for Complaints and Disabilities in the Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO). OEO handles sexual harassment complaints that arise in the employment context, including students working at CSU through work study or as graduate teaching assistants, as well as concerns of discrimination, harassment, and/or disability.

Tsai spent most of his life in Pennsylvania, having moved to Fort Collins last year. Before that, he practiced law at the City of Cheyenne and in private practice with Morgan, Lewis and Bockius LLP, primarily focusing on employment law.

Ashley Vigil works with Support and Safety Assessment on campus and investigates incidents of sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence that students are involved in. Vigil will present information regarding the requirements of mandatory reporters at CSU and the investigative process. She also will be available to answer any questions about information that will need to be reported, how to have the conversation with students about your requirement to report, and any other questions that you may have.

Kathy Sisneros is the director for the Women and Gender Advocacy Center. The Center is a confidential resource providing support and assisting students navigating systems and processes that they may choose to engage. The Center provides information about academic, legal, medical, emotional, and student conduct resources to survivors of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking.  The Center is committed to creating a safe and affirming space for students during a highly traumatizing time and experience.
