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. Given the heightened focus on enforcement of Title IX, and the increasing complexity of sexual misconduct matters, it is important 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 to satisfy annual training requirements and to provide Advanced Title IX Coordinators and Deputy Coordinators with an up-to-date understanding of current compliance requirements and best practices for those who are already familiar with the basics. 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 for institutions. This experience will help participants understand not only legal requirements but also the practical day-to-day application of related policies and procedures. This first-hand, real world experience will help even the most experienced participants navigate the complex and often nuanced issues that arise throughout the sexual misconduct process. Attendees will also have the opportunity to put their training into action as they work together to oversee a sexual misconduct case. Attendees will receive a certificate verifying their completion of the training session.
