Event Description

Policies and Procedures for Title IX and the Clery Act Compliance

Some believe Title IX is the law that allows females to play sports in school. Certainly, the Civil Right Act Title IX paved the way for that reality; however, Title IX is much more expansive than a sports law. Title IX requires that educational institutions provide for an equal education for females and males. The law includes discrimination and harassment, including sexual assault and rape—a major issue on college and university campuses around the country. Research suggests college campuses are not responding to complaints of sexual violence according to Title IX law requirements, resulting in students’ physical and psychological trauma and violating their civil rights to an equitable education.

Not only does Title IX require that higher education institutions prevent and intervene on instances of sexual harassment and sexual assault, but it is joined by the Clery Act. The U. S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights’ (OCR) issued a formal guidance to all schools, which explains that Title IX also cover sexual violence, and lays out the specific Title IX requirements applicable to sexual violence. A number of different acts fall into the category of sexual violence, including rape.

Does your campus have a prevention and intervention strategy to deal with sexual violence? Do you ensure that Title IX and the Clery Act laws are adhered to? Might you be at risk to lose federal funding by not abiding by OCR’s guidance?

This session by expert speaker Dr. Susan Strauss will provide you with the necessary information to enhance your campus equity culture and minimize the risk of sexual violence and liability.
