Title IX is a focus at many educational institutions who receive federal financial funds. Yet, many institutions still do not understand the importance of a good Title IX investigation or how that is accomplished. Since 2011, it has become clear to many that addressing sexual misconduct is required under the Title IX implementing regulations. What is less clear is how to maintain an equitable balance between what is required by the federal law and the emotional position of the parties involved.
Please join Bev Baligad as she discusses basic information regarding Title IX investigations and some things your institution should be thinking about as you review your investigation processes. If you are new to the Title IX realm or could use a refresher on what Title IX investigations are and the importance of doing them right, then this webinar is for you.
