From the #MeToo dialogue in the U.S. to Ivy League handbook definitions requiring affirmative (not effective) consent for each sexual interaction, expectations and conversations are indelibly changed.

Analyze institutional needs regarding updating handbook policies; employee, student, and family education and training; and improvements for appropriate disciplinary standard and response protocols involving students, employees, and others involved with our schools. Dissect legal liability and scrutiny of actions and decisions. Grapple with perceptions and assumptions that may no longer be viable, advisable, or palatable to many or most.
