Powers education attorneys Dan Brozovic and Katherine Demedis, along with Laura Sitarski of Sitarski Law, will present a webinar titled, “Are You Ready to Implement the New Title IX Rules?” as part of Career Education Colleges and Universities’ (CECU) 2020 Virtual Convention.
The U.S. Department of Education’s new Title IX rules are currently set to take effect on August 14, 2020 and will impact how institutions must respond to allegations of sexual assault and harassment. This presentation will walk schools through the process of handling a Title IX complaint, including the required investigation, hearing and appeal phases. The presentation will highlight critical changes to the required investigation and grievance processes, including the much-debated requirements for postsecondary institutions to hold live hearings with cross-examination of parties and witnesses. It will also highlight where the new regulations overlap with the existing requirements of the Clery Act. Finally, the presenters will address new requirements regarding staffing, dissemination of information, training, and record-keeping under Title IX.
The presentation will be pre-recorded and made available to convention attendees on the CECU website beginning June 17. Visit this page for more information about FREE attendee registration for the 2020 Virtual Convention.
