Seminar Coming Spring 2024
Evaluate Current Title IX Staffing Needs, Gaps, and Opportunities in the Context of Compliance and Exemplary Programs
The implementation of the 2011 Dear Colleague Letter led to the establishment of Title IX offices and the appointment of dedicated Title IX coordinators. By 2014, it was clear that compliance required a collective effort, leading to the formation of Title IX teams. In 2020, new Title IX regulations mandated the formation of teams to ensure compliance. Now, Title IX offices with full-time, dedicated staff are a permanent fixture on many campuses.
Leading a Title IX team is challenging, even for experienced supervisors. Title IX offices face high staff turnover, burnout, and scrutiny from internal stakeholders, courts, and the media. The work of ensuring Title IX compliance involves a distinctive blend of procedural and personnel oversight, which is not typically taught elsewhere. The regulations provide guidance on what districts and institutions must accomplish but leave the methods up to them. Learn the crucial strategies and skills designed for the unique needs of Title IX teamwork because it takes a village to ensure programmatic excellence.
