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 for Title IX coordinators, deputy coordinators, and other key personnel responsible for ensuring your institution’s compliance. 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 collective experience will help participants understand not only legal requirements but also the practical day-to-day application of related policies and procedures. And this first-hand, real world experience will help prepare participants to navigate the complex issues that arise throughout the sexual misconduct process.
Attendees will receive a certificate verifying their completion of the training session.
