Title IX Policy: Preventing Sex Discrimination and Sexual Violence on Campus
While most are aware of Title IX as the sex discrimination law, not everyone knows how much this law has and continues to evolve. Enacted in 1972, Title IX of the Education Amendments was originally administered by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The law prohibited discrimination on the basis of sex for any activities in any institution that received federal funding of any kind.
Originally seen as an equality-in-athletics initiative, the broad language of the Title IX law left it open to interpretation and revision. What legislators could not have predicted forty years ago was the potential reach of Title IX, and how many people are now under its protection. OCR’s “Dear Colleagues Letter” expands Title IX beyond just sex discrimination to also cover various forms of harassment (sexual harassment, sexual violence, etc) and details how Title IX laws can apply to incidents that occur on- and off-campus. However you manage campus issues and concerns, your duty is to know the law, establish an actionable Title IX harassment policy, and act in compliance. Workplace Answers Title IX Awareness & Violence Prevention course not only trains administrators on the law, it also helps to create a healthy, respectful learning environment that benefits everyone.
Skipping Title IX Training Can Be a Costly Mistake
Failing to train faculty and staff on how to conduct a thorough, professional investigation to ameliorate a problem could be your highest area of exposure. While you can’t control whether a student is only comfortable confiding in a Resident Advisor, rather than your school’s Title IX Coordinator, you must control that the RA knows how to respond and report appropriately.
