Title IX, the Violence Against Women Act and the Clery Act. You and your institution have laid the groundwork for compliance with policies, programs and basic training. In light of heightened awareness, shifting guidance and an increase in investigations, institutions of higher education must also train their Title IX professionals to effectively investigate and resolve complaints of sex discrimination, sexual harassment and interpersonal violence.
Your Title IX professionals are invited to join Husch Blackwell’s Higher Education team for a full-day course that goes beyond the basics. The Title IX Workshop digs into actual problems and scenarios you are likely to face and provides practical advice to use at your institution.
This course is taught by experienced higher education attorneys who focus on sexual misconduct investigations and compliance guidance under Title IX, VAWA and the Clery Act. It will include traditional presentations, videos and a variety of interactive modules with up-to-date information on responding to sexual misconduct in a manner that ensures fairness, accuracy and compliance.
