Sexual Misconduct on Campus Part I: Defining Sexual Misconduct

Vol. 5 No. 8

Talking about sexual misconduct—sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, and rape—is not a comfortable topic for anyone. Yet, it’s a topic that can’t be ignored. It demands that we push past our discomfort. As Risk Manager, you know that reacting to a situation without established protocol is dangerous. You might not react in compliance with the law, and you could add more injury to the situation—especially in cases of sexual misconduct that need to be handled delicately.

Returning To School Life After Substance Abuse Treatment

Vol. 5 No. 7

For HR Managers, only part of their job is complete once employees enter substance rehabilitation treatment. You may have had to encourage a faculty or staff member to enter treatment—this could have even been a last chance at saving the person’s life and career. But, after treatment, there is still a great deal of HR effort that must go into helping that person transition back into the daily flow of your school.

Q: Our School Head received your recent flyer about student accident coverage and asked me to look into this insurance for our school. She believes by covering our students we’re meeting our due diligence as a school. I’m sorry, but I’m struggling with this rationale. Our students should be covered under their parent’s policies, right?

But, with summer right around the corner, the time for flash fitness is upon us. No more excuses—find an app that’s right for you and set yourself up for a 30-day challenge.

Securing Student Files

Vol. 5 No. 6

Some of the most sensitive files your office manages are your student files. Grades, personal information, and health information pertaining to each of your students must be as secure as your employee files. Yet, unlike your employee files, certain student records also need to be accessed regularly by key faculty and staff.
