Training

As of August 14, 2020, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights requires all institutions receiving federal funds to make publicly available all materials used to train Title IX Coordinators, Investigators, and Decision-makers. 

Note that our team engages in other professional development on a regular basis, beyond these targeted trainings, including various webinars, seminars, workshops, articles, videos, CLE (continuing legal education) events, and group discussions on relevant topics.
