Join our attorneys for an introduction to a variety of issues that may arise out of the interplay between the free exercise of religion at religiously affiliated institutions and those schools’ non-discrimination obligations under Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972.


  • Title IX’s religious liberty exemption and constitutional protections for religious liberty
  • Update on OCR’s position concerning gender identity discrimination/gender stereotyping and the current state of case law
  • Teaching and articulating religious beliefs without creating a “hostile environment” for dissenters or non-believers
  • The relationship between student behavior codes and Title IX-mandated grievance policies and procedures
