Comprehensive Strategies for Title IX Coordinators: Institute and Certification

Comprehensive Strategies for Title IX Coordinators: Institute and Certification

Baltimore, MD | October 16 - 18, 2024

Learn essential strategies and tools to be an effective Title IX Coordinator.


The issues facing Title IX Coordinators are continuing to become more complex. Many who are new to the role are struggling to find their footing, and even those with more experience are finding it hard to get accustomed to the continually shifting legal landscape and uncertainty. Additionally, with the recent notification of the new Title IX federal regulations issued by the Department of Education, Title IX Coordinators must move quickly and efficiently to implement these new compliance requirements.

Join us for this comprehensive learning experience, designed to prepare you with the skills, tools, and resources you need to be confident in your role while leading Title IX compliance efforts on your campus. We will address a wide range of responsibilities, such as:

  • Understanding the new grievance procedures mandated per the 2024 regulations.
  • Managing the role and scope of your responsibilities.
  • Learning best practices for investigating and adjudicating cases.
  • Analyzing threat assessment considerations.
  • Training for your teams, campus community, and much more.

This conference isn’t like your typical association event. So what makes it different?

1) Hands-On Practice: This event is your opportunity to practice real-life scenarios and case studies, all designed to address the most pressing—and sometimes isolating—challenges you face in your role.

2) Real-Time Planning: You'll be able to apply what you're learning in real time by creating tangible plans and resources you can put into play as soon as you return to campus.

After completing the conference, you will receive a certificate of completion to document your participation and credentials in your role as Title IX Coordinator.
