With increased awareness of appropriate boundaries, and a growing number of schools releasing reports of investigations into sexual misconduct, administrators should be prepared for the possibility that their own alumni may assert that they were abused in the past and seek to have the school investigate their concerns. Understand the liability considerations in investigating (or not investigating) allegations of abuse lodged by alumni. Develop a sensitivity to the concerns that may be raised by various constituencies and familiarize yourself with the progression of an investigation.
