Title IX Coordinator Training Class

Title IX Coordinator Training Class

D. Stafford & Associates (DSA) conducts a 4 day (5 shorter days for the virtual version) Title IX Coordinator Training class, which is designed for campus administrators on campus who are responsible for coordinating the institution’s response to reports of sexual misconduct and overseeing the grievance process. 

In this comprehensive course, participants will learn how to manage a complaint of sexual misconduct, from sexual harassment to sexual assault. The course covers an overview of the Title IX function and will include opportunities for discussion and participation in case studies and practical exercises as well as opportunities for networking with other higher education professionals. The course will cover the training required for Title IX Coordinators as required by Title IX and the Clery Act, as amended by the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act of 2013. The class will cover any new guidance or updates.

Some of the key topics that will be covered are:

  • Legal landscape including Title IX, Title VII, and the Clery Act
  • Title IX Personnel – Responsibilities for coordinating investigating, adjudicating, and advising
  • Serving impartially and avoiding conflicts of interest and bias in the Title IX grievance processes
  • Understanding the scope of an institution’s educational programs and activities
  • Managing cases outside the jurisdiction of Title IX
  • Responding to actual knowledge including intake, supportive measures, and investigative oversight
  • Facilitating formal and informal grievance processes
