Title IX Training Program

Josh Richards and Amy Piccola, both partners in the Firm's Higher Education Practice, will conduct a full-day training program covering the fundamentals of compliance with the Title IX sexual harassment regulations, providing comprehensive instruction, best practices and recommendations on how your campus stakeholders, including Title IX coordinators, investigators, hearing decision-makers, appellate officers, facilitators of informal resolution processes and administrators, should approach implementation of the specific facets of the regulations.  Josh and Amy will begin the session with a statutory/regulatory update on the status of the Title IX regulations and President-elect Biden's steps, if any, toward changing institutions' compliance obligations.

High-level topics to be addressed during the training include:

  • The Title IX definition of sexual harassment
  • The scope of institutions’ programs and activities
  • How to conduct an investigation, hearing, and appeal
  • Issues of relevance (including as related to questions and evidence at the hearing)
  • How to prepare an investigative report (including how to fairly summarize relevant evidence), a written determination of responsibility, and an appeal determination
  • How to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest and bias
