Title IX Investigators-in-Training
Attendees of Intensive Two-Day Program
Large State University
"Very complete and informative session. It used real life examples and was delivered by a professional who makes a living at taking similar cases as us. Energetic presenter that moves away from the boring lecture presenters. [. . . ] I found it supremely helpful to hear an “outsider’s” perspective on the Title IX investigation process(es). Rebecca’s background was really useful/purposeful with regards to experience and the how’s and why’s of investigations. [. . .] I thought Rebecca did an amazing job of explaining things in a new, and interesting way. She was very energetic and kept everyone’s attention with ease. She also brought up some tricky situations that prompted good discussion, and things that we had either not discussed before or had not discussed in a while that I found helpful."

Ann Skirvin, LMHC,
Supervisor of RAISE,
Indiana University Sexual Assault Crisis Services
"Rebecca has been and continues to be an invaluable resource to Indiana University and the Sexual Assault Crisis Service. Rebecca spearheaded the creation of an innovative, interactive program which she presented with our peer education group, to thousands of Greek and non-Greek students on the Bloomington campus. Rebecca is amazing at connecting with college-aged men and women and always receives outstanding feedback on her presentations. Her experience as a prosecutor and investigator allows her to provide real-life anecdotes illustrating the dynamics of campus violence in a high energy, interactive style. Rebecca is a phenomenal speaker and resource who I would highly recommend to any audience or university looking to improve their understanding and response to the complex issue of sexual assault."
Sex Crimes Deputy Prosecutor
"Rebecca has a strong understanding of the dynamics of campus sexual assaults which made her work in the prosecutor’s office of the highest caliber. Beyond her extensive knowledge of sexual violence, Rebecca’s character and integrity made her an excellent prosecutor. She was able to earn the trust and confidence of victims. At the same time, she had the highest respect for due process for those accused of sex crimes and took the power and responsibility of the role of the state prosecutor very seriously."
Police Department of Large State University
"The trainings Rebecca provided to our law enforcement cadets—many of whom go on to positions with campus police forces—helped them understand the critical importance of the first responder in sexual assault investigations. Rebecca taught the cadets about the dual priorities of treating victims with respect and investigating with vigor and impartiality."
SANE Program Chair
"The training Rebecca provided to our nurses greatly enhanced our knowledge of our role in the criminal justice system. Rebecca focused on the significance of the SANE's work in a sexual assault case. She emphasized the need for objectivity in our collection of evidence and for maintaining the highest standard of practice, all while providing compassion and medical care to our patient. She walked us through the evidence collection kit process to help us appreciate how each step might be involved in an actual criminal prosecution."

"Throughout her entire presentation Ms. Veidlinger was very entertaining and informative. She did an excellent job in that she connected the audience with real-life examples. Ms. Veidlinger helped explain consent and the role of alcohol and communication in an approachable way. She also gave us specific pieces of advice for bystander intervention and ways to confirm consent. She made the entire 160 young men audience feel comfortable to open up and ask questions about this sensitive subject. Over all, Ms. Veidlinger did an outstanding job and we encourage Greek organizations to take part in her program. We will definitely be in contact with her in planning future events."
