In November of last year, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos released a controversial plan to overhaul how schools across the country address sexual misconduct complaints, narrowing the definition of what sexual harassment is on campus and reinforcing “due process” rights for students accused. This drastic change in direction from previous years makes a strong for making clarifications and changes, and some feel DeVos’s proposals force schools to put the rights of the accused on par with the rights of the complainant. These such as requiring schools to allow cross-examination, differ greatly from the previous administration and have a far-reaching impact on higher education campuses across the country.

Title IX is the federal law that bans sex-based discrimination in federally funded education programs. Changes that have already occurred in the Trump Administration include the rescinding of Obama-era guidelines to require that colleges use the lowest standard of proof, called “preponderance of the evidence,” in adjudicating complaints. The DOE changes ask institutions to decide if they want to use that standard or the higher “clear and convincing” standard, as long as it is consistently applied in all matters of misconduct

Join this session by expert speaker Kent Seavor, where he will elaborate on the New Title IX Regulations, how to apply them and their implications.

Session Highlights:

  • How The Trump and DeVos Administrations interpret Title IX

  • How Diligence and Vigilance are more important parts of Title IX training than ever before

  • What role the Office of Civil Rights continues to play in Title IX investigations

  • What are some Best Practices about implementing the hearing panel apparatuses and other training requirements

Why You Should Attend:

The issue at hand: how will these controversial changes affect, and protect, students in 2020…and beyond?

Will institutions of higher learning become safer, or more confused as to how to apply the law? Will the new regulations create a better sense of equality among the accused and accuser, or will “survivors” go back to becoming “victims”? The questions that are raised are extremely important for all students and colleges, and the answers and analysis provided in this presentation will create a better sense of understanding into this perplexing issue.
