About

With the final Title IX regulations from the Department of Education published in May, the push is on for student affairs administrators from across campus to come together to determine how their institutions will adjust to meet the requirements of the new rule by the August 14 implementation deadline. A key piece of this compliance comes in the form of training – for Title IX coordinators, Title IX investigators, and the newly created role of Title IX decision-makers, as outlined in the new rule. NASPA has partnered with Peter Lake and other experts in higher education to develop a comprehensive training tailored to each of these roles. In addition, this training is essential for student conduct administrators who will learn about how Title IX and student conduct policies may provide different ways to address various types of sexual misconduct in the community. This new training program is a one-of-a-kind, individualized, hybrid online and synchronous learning experience designed to assist administrators in getting up to speed on all facets of the new rule. This certificate program is specifically designed to assist higher education administrators in understanding the new Title IX rules.

The Title IX Certification Program consists of three tracks:

  • Track 1: Title IX Coordinators

  • Track 2: Title IX Decision-Makers and Student Conduct Administrators

  • Track 3: Title IX Investigators

 

Learning Outcomes

After attending this training, participants will be provided with a certificate, indicating that they have demonstrated the following:

  • Understanding the new requirements within the Title IX regulations issued by the Department of Education

  • Identify the intersections between Clery Act, Title VII, and Title IX

  • Identifying the elements of evidence under the new Title IX regulations

  • Composing policies, practices, and procedures that comply with the regulations

 

Track 1: Title IX Coordinators

This track is designed for Title IX Coordinators, and is the most comprehensive of the certificate program. This track covers the requirements under the new regulations for hearing proceedings; an overview of informal resolution options; and the development of policies, procedures, and practices that are compliant with the new regulations. This track is appropriate for the senior Title IX officer at an institution, or any other senior level administrators who provides oversight for the Title IX function at an institution.
