Comprehensive Strategies for Title IX Coordinators: Institute and Certification

July 27 - 29, 2020 | Eastern Time

As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds nationally, it is so important to keep connecting and networking with your peers - at a “social distance” - and to keep learning and developing as higher-ed leaders and professionals. Don’t let social distancing and quarantines prevent you from setting aside time for professional development. Everything is changing so fast; more than ever, we need to be pooling our resources and knowledge and finding the best ways to develop our capacity, connect and share with each other, and move forward during a challenging time.

All of our 2020 virtual conferences are now included for free as part of your membership.
