Title IX for Higher Education

Every educational institution wants to foster a welcoming, supportive environment for its students. Gender equity is at the heart of a progressive culture in higher education. Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 is a landmark civil rights law prohibiting discrimination in education programs and activities that receive federal funding. Sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, as well as the failure to provide equal opportunity in educational and co-curricular programs including athletics are prohibited by the legislation. This course is designed for all members of the campus community who have a responsibility in helping their school develop and maintain a respectful environment. It will provide awareness-level training on avoiding, identifying, and reporting sexual discrimination, harassment, and violence, and on complying with Title IX. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by the Labor, Employment, and Employee Benefits Law Group of the law firm of Sheehan Phinney Bass + Green PA.

Depending on state law and other circumstances, additional characteristics such as sexual orientation and marital status may also be protected. This course will review the characteristics of various forms of harassment and discuss what supervisors and managers can do to discourage harassing behavior of any type in their own work groups by their associates or themselves.
