The Four Corners of Title IX Regulatory Compliance

Course Description

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is pleased to announce that it will host a 3-day intensive training entitled “The Four Corners of Title IX Regulatory Compliance.”  Title IX compliance may be the most complicated regulatory mandate colleges must comply with, especially with the release of new regulations on Title IX that took effect on August 14, 2020.  Professor Peter Lake, an expert on Title IX and a well-known scholar in higher education law and policy, has developed a model for a well-ordered Title IX response system and has now tuned that model to recent Title IX legal developments.  Lake’s Four Corners of Title IX Regulatory Compliance addresses the following metrics: 

  • Organization and management -appropriately trained and positioned staff, website design, self-evaluation of the system

  • Investigation, discipline and mediation -including fairness to both the complainant and respondent, potential challenges to our systems in court, appeals, review and grievance procedures for staff and students

  • Supportive measures - support services for complainants and respondents, including interim measures and advocacy 

  • Culture and climate management -surveys and “checks,” violence prevention, and “voluntary compliance” with the spirit of the Title IX 

Join Professor Lake and learn how you can create a robust, comprehensive Title IX system that complies with both the letter and spirit of the law. This course will cover legal foundations and an in-depth discussion of the new regulations, in addition to the Four Corners of Title IX Regulatory Compliance.
