On May 6, 2020, the Department of Education published its final Title IX regulations, which create new rules for how institutions address and respond to reports of sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking on their campuses. With an effective date of August 14, these regulations have understandably left many institutions anxious about compliance in the ever-changing Title IX legal landscape.

The final regulations are broad ranging, touching on many different aspects of your institution’s policies and procedures. The final regulations narrow the scope of conduct that is covered by Title IX while also expanding procedural requirements for the complaint resolution process. Most impactful is a new provision mandating that every institution hold live hearings with an opportunity for cross-examination. In addition, under the final regulations, institutions must provide the parties with access to information collected during the investigation that is directly related to the allegations and an opportunity to respond to that evidence and to the investigation report prior to a determination of responsibility. Other notable changes include new record-keeping requirements and mandatory appeals.

Join us for a two-hour training designed to discuss what you need to know about the Title IX regulations. We will also provide practical advice on when and to what extent institutions should update their policies and procedures in light of the changes to the legal landscape. Our training will be conducted by Higher Education attorneys specializing in Title IX compliance who have worked with the Department of Education on these very issues.
