Increased attention is being paid to safety on campus and the importance of making students aware of the risks associated with sexual assault and violence. To this end, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) extends to protect students from sexual harassment and sexual violence, such as rape, sexual battery, and sexual coercion. In recent years, the Department of Education has provided greater attention to this area, including issuing a detailed document in April 2014 entitled Questions and Answers on Title IX and Sexual Violence and issuing in April 2015 a "Dear Colleague Letter" addressing the roles and responsibilities of Title IX coordinators within schools. Because of this increased attention, colleges and universities must ensure their compliance with these laws and requirements.
Please join Richard Verstegen as he explains the need for colleges and universities to prevent sexual violence, to take interim measures in response to a complaint, to investigate and resolve complaints of sexual violence, and to protect victims of sexual violence.
