2024 Title IX Educational Series: Translating the New Regulations into Your Title IX Policies and Procedures

 

May 28, 2024 | June 4, 2024 | June 11, 2024 | June 18, 2024 | June 25, 2024

Gain practical recommendations to align your current policies and procedures with the soon-to-be-released new regulations.

Overview

As Title IX Coordinators, you have likely already started to brace yourself for the anticipated sweeping changes to the Title IX regulations. As the designated Title IX leader for your campus, you are responsible not only for updating your policies and procedures, but also for communicating those changes thoughtfully and effectively with students, faculty, staff, and members of your Title IX team.

Join us for an engaged discussion about the practical steps you can start implementing right away as the clock starts ticking—before you need to ensure compliance with the law. Our expert panel will share practical recommendations and their analysis of the new law, as well as how they effectively prepared their campus communities for the changes that lie ahead.

How it Works

This educational series consists of five one-hour sessions facilitated by three expert Title IX leaders in our field. You will have the opportunity to learn, interpret, and discuss how the new regulations will impact your current Title IX policies and procedures and what changes will be necessary as required by the U.S. Department of Education.

You may choose to attend some or all the discussion sessions. To get the most out of the series, we strongly recommend that you attend all five sessions. If you are unable to attend and have registered for the sessions, recordings will be made available approximately 10 business days following the live event.
