Title IX Coordinators and Deputy Coordinators are responsible for ensuring that your institution complies with its obligations under Title IX and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA), and higher education institutions are legally required to provide them with specialized training on an annual basis. Further, with new Title IX regulations expected in the coming months, Title IX Coordinators and Deputy Coordinators will need to be prepared to bring your institution’s policies and procedures into compliance with the new Title IX rule. Given the current legal obligations, the anticipated changes to the law, the heightened focus on enforcement of Title IX, and the increasing complexity of sexual misconduct matters, it is more important than ever that your Title IX Coordinators are well trained on your institution’s obligations under Title IX and VAWA.
Join us for an in-depth training specifically designed for new Title IX Coordinators, Deputy Coordinators, and other key personnel responsible for ensuring your institution’s compliance. The benefits of our training extend beyond simply satisfying your annual training requirements and gaining an understanding of the current compliance requirements. Our training is conducted by higher education attorneys who regularly advise institutions on all aspects of the sexual misconduct process, from policy drafting, to investigating and adjudicating sexual misconduct cases, through the final resolution of sexual misconduct matters. This firsthand, real-world experience will help participants to understand not only the legal requirements but also the practical day-to-day application of related policies and procedures and to navigate the complex issues that arise throughout the sexual misconduct process. This session will also specifically address the impact and challenges of trauma in navigating the sexual misconduct process. Attendees will have the opportunity to put their training into action as they consider hypothetical scenarios and receive valuable, in-the-moment feedback from higher education attorneys. Attendees will receive a certificate verifying their completion of the training session.
