About

The new Title IX regulations were released in April 2024 with an implementation date of August 1, 2024, and include some training requirements similar to the previous regulations. However, many important aspects of Title IX regulations have been changed or expanded and will require Title IX operatives, including Title IX Coordinators (and Deputies/Designees, if any), Title IX Investigators, and Title IX Decision-Makers (including those hearing appeals), to receive updated training. In addition, this training is valuable for Student Conduct Administrators to learn how Title IX and student conduct policies may intersect and differ in important ways under the new Title IX regulations.

The NASPA Title IX Certificate Program consists of three training tracks:

  •        Track 1: Title IX Coordinators (and Deputies/Designees)
  •        Track 2: Title IX Decision-Makers and Student Conduct Administrators
  •        Track 3: Title IX Investigators

 

The release of the new Title IX regulations brings with it expanded choices for some institutions regarding the various roles student affairs administrators may play in Title IX compliance efforts on campus. For example, in certain jurisdictions, colleges may choose (and are permitted by the regulations) to use a single investigator model, which means the same person will investigate a matter and make a decision regarding responsibility. Other campuses will not choose to use that model, or are prohibited from doing so by law, and will continue to bifurcate the investigation and decision-making functions. Some campuses use a pool of staff who may be asked to serve as an investigator or a decision-maker, depending on the matter. In this vein, and to offer greater flexibility in training options, two training supplements* are available for registrants in the Decision-Maker/Student Conduct Training Track (Track 2) or the Investigators Training Track (Track 3) to add on to their training now or in the future:

 

  •        If you have historically served or will serve as a Title IX Decision-Maker (or are a Student Conduct Administrator) but you may be asked to do investigations in the future or would like investigator training, register now for the Decision-Maker/Student Conduct Administrator Track (Track 2) and you will have the opportunity to add on the Investigations for Decision-Makers Supplement, which provides additional training on investigations only, now or at a later date.

 

  •        If you have historically served or will serve as a Title IX Investigator, but your institution is contemplating moving to a single investigator model where the investigator also makes a determination of a policy violation, register now for the Investigator Track (Track 3) and you will have the opportunity to add on the Decision-Making for Investigators Supplement, which provides additional training on decision-making only, now or at a later date.

 

*Please note: These training supplements are only available to those who are registered to attend the new NASPA Title IX training program on the requirements of the 2024 Title IX regulations. These supplements will be offered again in conjunction with future Title IX training cohorts, and those who register for Track 2 and Track 3 training will be notified of the availability of these supplements in the future if you elect not to take supplemental training now.

 

As with NASPA’s previous Title IX trainings, and in accordance with the new regulations that stipulate a Title IX Coordinator may also serve as a decision-maker or an investigator, Title IX Coordinators receive training in all three tracks to ensure they are prepared for ultimate oversite of the Title IX system on their campus, but also to prepare them to serve in other roles if necessary. 

 

NASPA is pleased to continue collaborating with Peter Lake and other experts in the field to provide a comprehensive training tailored to the various roles on campus related to Title IX compliance. This 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 2024 Title IX regulations and to make sure your campus is ready to comply with the new regulations on August 1, 2024.

Learning Outcomes and Assessment

After attending this training, all participants will be provided with a certificate, indicating that they have demonstrated understanding of:

  •        The requirements of their role within the 2024 Title IX regulations issued by the Department of Education.
  •        Their institution’s obligation under §106.44 to address sex discrimination and what constitutes an “education program or activity.”
  •        Important definitions, including the scope of conduct that constitutes sex discrimination, the definition of “sex-based harassment” and what constitutes “consent.”
  •        The mandated Title IX grievance procedures under § 106.45 and § 106.46, including all applicable notification and information requirements under §§ 106.40(b)(2) and 106.44.
  •        The types of evidence considered or encountered in the Title IX grievance process, including what constitutes “relevant” evidence and what evidence is impermissible.
  •        How to ask appropriate and relevant questions in investigations and/or hearings.
  •        The roles of advisors in the Title IX process.
  •        The importance of maintaining a Title IX process free from bias, partiality, sex stereotypes, and conflicts of interest.
  •        Records management, FERPA, and the importance of privacy and confidentiality.
  •        Definitions and implementation of “supportive measures” and “remedies” under Title IX.
  •        Pregnant and parenting issues.
  •        Intersections between Title IX and the Clery Act, Title VII, disability, and other applicable laws.

Each specific track contains mandated training as outlined in §106.8(d)(1), (2) and (4) of the 2024 Title IX regulations. In-depth training for those who facilitate informal resolution processes under §106.8(d)(3) is offered in a separate NASPA training program.

It is important to keep up-to-date on Title IX training. As stated in §106.8(d), Title IX Coordinators (and Deputies/Designees), Investigators, and Decision-Makers (including those hearing appeals) must “receive training related to their duties under Title IX promptly upon hiring or change of position that alters their duties under Title IX . . . and annually thereafter.”

All pre-recorded online video modules have an assessment component; all required module assessments must be completed before a certificate will be awarded.

 

Training Track Details

Training Track Details

 

The listings of video training modules included with each track are detailed below. These video modules can be viewed asynchronously in your own space and at your own pace. However, please be advised, once you start a module, you must complete that module. If you exit out of the module, you will have to start over at the beginning. Therefore, please make note of the module length before starting a module. Again, you will have to pass an assessment before completing the module. You must complete all video module assessments before you will receive a certificate for your training track. You will be given two attempts to complete the assessments successfully.

 

In addition to the pre-recorded video training modules, there are live training sessions offered on the dates below. The live training sessions will be used for skill-building exercises, small-group case studies, examining hot spot issues, and receiving Title IX-related updates. These live sessions are your chance to interact with the program instructors. Attendance is taken at the live sessions. However, if you cannot attend the live session(s) on the date(s) below, you will be given access to a video recording of the live session and you must watch the video in its entirety in order to receive your certificate.

 

[DISCLAIMER: The pre-recorded video training modules are currently in development by the NAPSA Title IX Certificate Program training team. The exact topics and duration listed for the training tracks and individual modules below are subject to change. Video training modules will be available to the cohort on a rolling basis, with the first batch of modules released on Monday, June 3, 2024.] 

Track 1: Title IX Coordinators

This track is designed for Title IX Coordinators (and their Deputies or Designees) and is the most comprehensive of the certificate program. This track is appropriate for the senior Title IX officer, Deputy Title IX Coordinator or other designee at an institution or system, or any other senior-level administrators who provide oversight for the Title IX function at an institution or system.

NOTE: For those participants who have previously completed the entire NASPA Title IX Coordinator Training Track and received the certificate after January 1, 2023, the modules below denoted with *** are optional (but recommended). All modules not denoted with *** are required, including participation in the live sessions. You will still have access to all training material for both the required and optional modules.

For all others, all modules and live sessions are required to achieve the Title IX Coordinator training certificate.
