Empower yourself to excel with the right tools and strategies to be successful in your new role as a Title IX Coordinator.

Join us for this conference that will provide you with the proper tools and information to effectively establish your role on campus while gaining confidence in your department’s policies and procedures — regardless of your level of legal experience. You will:

  • Learn and understand your fundamental job requirements
  • Develop or refine a customized case management log to consistently manage and record each case

Breakfast, Registration, and Introductions



Defining Your New Coordinator Role

In this opening hour, you’ll unpack this job description and prioritize the many roles you’re asked to manage on campus as a new Title IX Coordinator. Title IX Coordinators must work diligently to set expectations that are clearly defined so that they can quickly establish credibility and learn how to prioritize competing responsibilities. You’ll learn how to define and explain at least five fundamental requirements specific to the Title IX Coordinator role.


Institutional Policy & Procedures Overview

Title IX federal law, VAWA, Clery Act, and state laws, to name a few, should always top of mind for a coordinator when defining or refining non-discrimination and/or sexual harassment policies and procedures. You will learn and review critical laws and how they may/should inform your campus’ current policies. Our expert speaker will provide tips and strategies for how to stay current with changing legislation. You’ll learn how to identify and interpret at least five changes that may be needed in your campus’ discrimination/sexual harassment policy relating to the approval of the new Title IX federal law changes.


Prevention and Awareness Programming

A key component of a Title IX Coordinator’s role is to ensure that education for new and returning students and employees is ongoing, relevant, and up-to-date with the campus’s policies on Title IX and sexual misconduct. This session will highlight effective and practical strategies to meet the demands for facilitating annual training and program initiatives. You’ll learn how to identify and develop a strategic plan for the next academic year to advance Title IX programming and awareness efforts for your campus.


Case Management 101

Managing a campus’ sexual harassment and gender-based misconduct cases is one of the primary responsibilities of a Title IX Coordinator — particularly when it comes to submitting accurate counts for annual Clery reporting purposes or, in some cases, reporting numbers as required by state law. We’ll go over:

  • New tools for tracking cases
  • A checklist for ensuring that cases are processed consistently from open to close
  • Sample Notice of Investigation letters when a new investigation needs to be initiated
  • Sample informal resolution letters that new Coordinators will need to develop and use regularly.  

You’ll learn how to develop a customized case management log to record the status of each case managed by the Title IX Coordinator.



Networking Reception
Day 2

8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.


Training Your Campus’ Responsible Employees

New Title IX Coordinators have the responsibility to ensure that designated responsible employees understand their institution’s reporting protocol as it relates to sexual harassment/misconduct reports. Our expert speaker will walk you through a model responsible employee presentation that you can utilize on your own campus to ensure that designated responsible employees understand their institution’s policy and procedures, incidents that must be reported to the Coordinator, and how to have a safe and transparent conversation with reporting parties. You will prepare an outline and timeline to execute a customized campus training for your designated responsible employees.



Leading Your Campus’ Title IX Training Efforts

Providing oversight and directing training efforts for critical campus partners such as investigators, hearing panel/appellate officers, steering committee members, and campus leaders will be at the forefront of a Title IX Coordinator’s strategic planning efforts. You will learn how to review and differentiate training topics and learning outcomes for internal constituents on your campus.
