Title IX Coordinator Track
These classes are appropriate for Title IX Coordinators. It is suggested that Title IX Coordinators take the classes in the Coordinator Track in order of the Tiers (Tier 1, Tier 2, etc.) unless they have received other Title IX training that covers similar content. In that case, Title IX Coordinators are welcome to take any of the available classes in the order that suits their needs and schedules. Title IX Coordinators are welcome to take any classes in the Title IX Investigation Track as well.
Title IX Investigation Track
These classes are appropriate for Title IX Investigators. It is suggested that Title IX Investigators take the classes in the Investigation Track in the order of the Tiers (Tier 1, Tier 2, etc.) and so on unless they have received other Title IX Investigation training that covers similar content. In that case, Title IX Investigators are welcome to take any of the available classes in the order that suits their needs and schedules. Title IX Investigators are welcome to take any classes in the Title IX Coordinator Track as well.
The DSA Title IX team has trained over 10,000 Title IX Coordinators, Investigators, Hearing Officers and Advisors across the country and is well-known for delving into the practical application of Title IX. The DSA team, comprised of seasoned practitioners, and all have served as Title IX Coordinators/Deputy Coordinators and Investigators for institutions of higher education. As further changes to the required processes are made by the Office for Civil Rights, those changes are immediately incorporated into all relevant DSA classes.
Tier 2: Title IX Coordinator Class: Sex Discrimination Response
D. Stafford & Associates offers an 8-hour Title IX Coordinator Sex Discrimination Response class. This class is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of an institution’s response to reports of discrimination on the basis of sex, including sex-based harassment (quid pro quo, hostile environment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking). The class will satisfy the training requirements for Title IX Coordinators under the current Title IX regulations and the VAWA amendments to the Clery Act. The class will include information on any new guidance or updates.
Some of the key topics that will be covered are:
- Developing and Updating Policies (Considerations based on current regulatory landscape)
- Drafting and Implementing Procedures (Intake, Notice, Investigation, and Informal Resolutions)
- Constructing the Resolution Processes for Sex Discrimination and Sex-based Harassment
- Selecting and Training Personnel (includes conflict of interest and bias)
*This class is designed to provide information on oversight of investigations but will not provide in-depth training on investigations. Title IX Coordinators with responsibility for conducting investigations are encouraged to take the additional training class(es) as outlined in the “Title IX Investigations Track.”
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for persons who are responsible for coordinating the institution’s response to reports of sex discrimination, including sex-based harassment, and overseeing the grievance process. Title IX Coordinators and Deputy Title IX Coordinators, as well as practitioners in the areas of Human Resources, Equity & Diversity, Student Affairs, General Counsel, Athletics, and Campus Law Enforcement/Public Safety, are encouraged to attend. Attendees must be an employee of an institution of higher education.
Attendees of this class will receive a certificate of completion from D. Stafford & Associates. Certification verifies attendance at this class and can serve as an institution’s documentation that the attendee has received training that addresses issues related to managing and coordinating sex discrimination complaints, including the definition of sex-based harassment, the scope of the recipient’s education program or activity, and how to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, and bias.
This training program will feature expert faculty who serve or who have served as practitioners on college and university campuses throughout the country in the areas of behavioral intervention and threat assessment, student conduct, and human resources and legal affairs.
This class is an 8-hour class (with time built in for breaks).
