Recommended Prior Learning: 

Title IX Coordinator Foundations: Gender Equity for Higher Education or Title IX Coordinator Foundations for K-12 Education

Better Understand Your Community’s Experience, Perceptions, and Attitudes to Strategically Address Areas of Need

Evaluating the climate of an institution or district regarding gender-based equity is crucial for Title IX Coordinators and may be mandated by federal or state law.

This seminar aims to equip Title IX practitioners with the foundational knowledge of climate assessment methods, tools, and best practices to better understand the frequency of unwelcome conduct, needed services, and barriers to access/reporting. ATIXA’s skilled faculty members introduce the climate assessment not as a stand-alone survey but as a longitudinal self-study process that provides a feedback loop to assess if efforts at gender equity/inclusion are working. This seminar will review the requirements for higher education institutions under VAWA, and how to leverage federal and state requirements to raise awareness of community needs and possibilities for program revision and development.

Faculty members will present aspects of climate survey planning, promotion, implementation, and analysis. Participants will engage in practical survey planning and assessment-informed action planning exercises that can be implemented in their educational communities to inform strategic approves to prevention, removal of structural impediments, and achieving a better understanding of how programs/resources are perceived.
