Title IX Compliance & Higher Education: Best Practice

Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

Most people in the Higher Education legal community knew it was coming, but there was still shock and surprise on September 2017. On that day, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued new guidance regarding Title IX. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, in conjunction with the announcement, stated that her department was concerned that previous guidance denied proper due przocess to those accused. In the guidance, OCR stated “when addressing allegations of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, institutions are subject to the Clery Act regulations as well as Title IX.”

What does this mean for colleges, and what does it mean for Title IX? The changes, when announced, created considerable backlash among student and advocacy groups. But it is important to understand what has, and has not changed, in the area of protections afforded students who have been the victim of sexual assault and/or discrimination.

In this webinar expert speaker Kent Seaver will take an in-depth look at what has (and has not changed), why certain changes were made, and what future path you and your school can take to ensure Title IX compliance.

Session Highlights:

  • Gain an insight into the latest Title IX changes

  • Understand why the changes are controversial

  • Examine the need and importance of Bystander Intervention

  • Explore the importance of Campus Climate surveys and why schools need them

  • See what Best Practices can come out of the changes that benefit all people involved in Title IX
