Note: The course has been updated to address the U.S. Department of Education’s August 2020 Title IX regulations addressing sexual harassment. The regulations require institutions of higher education to make any Title IX training materials publicly available on their websites. Accordingly, course participants may post the updated course materials if they deem doing so appropriate in accordance with §106.45(b)(10). NACUA does not grant course participants permission to post course materials that were created prior to the release of the August 2020 regulations.
Title IX Coordinators are responsible for overseeing the entire breadth of an institution's Title IX compliance efforts. This includes gender discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, sexual assault, and athletics. These are significant responsibilities. To be effective, Coordinators should be well versed in the procedures, policies, and training mechanisms in place for addressing campus sexual harassment, sexual violence, and equity in athletics. It is crucial that Title IX Coordinators receive appropriate training to successfully handle the position's multiple responsibilities.
