Address campus challenges or continuously improve your Title IX policies and procedures by working with our subject-matter experts.

At Grand River Solutions, we understand that each school is unique, from its student body to its culture and values. Our experienced team members will assist you in developing a customized approach to fit your Title IX needs.

We provide a variety of in-depth consulting services that range from Title IX assessments to investigations and Title IX trainings. We are able to provide any combination of services to support your institution’s specific, and sometimes evolving, goals. You may choose to have us work with you on-campus or set up a remote, off-campus process that helps augment your existing staff and resources.

Grand River’s Title IX team offers you a flexible and collaborative approach. Our qualifications are distinctive because we have experience-based knowledge of the challenges and complexities of working within the college and university sector. Our team members have served in higher education leadership roles that include holding responsibility for Title IX/VAWA/Clery and sexual assault/sexual violence compliance throughout a multi-campus university system. We can truly act as trusted advisers to our clients.
