About

The current Title IX regulations became effective in August 2020 and we anticipate proposed amendments to those regulations by May 2022. In the meantime, institutions must ensure adherence to the current regulations until any proposed amendments become effective. Administrators must also remain vigilant in reviewing communications from the federal government related to Title IX enforcement. In addition to adhering to the May 2020 regulations, the current federal administration has offered its interpretations of current regulations in a recent Q&A document from the Department of Education. 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 joined forces with Peter Lake and other experts in the field 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.

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 May 2020 regulations for hearing proceedings, an overview of informal resolution options; and the development of policies, procedures, and practices that are compliant with the 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.
