Title IX Certificate Program: Informal Resolution

Includes Multiple Live Events. The next is on 08/05/2024 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

  • Registration Closed

The proposed Title IX regulations were issued in June 2022 and included similar training requirements as the current regulations. As institutions wait for the proposed rules to become finalized, institutions must ensure adherence to the current regulations until the proposed regulations become permanent. A key piece of this compliance comes in training – for Title IX coordinators, investigators, and decision-makers, as outlined in the previous administration’s regulations. The proposed regulations issued in June 2022 include additional training requirements for implementing informal resolution processes in Title IX cases. Campuses are already implementing a wide variety of informal processes, and the proposed regulations indicate that institutions must provide proper training to use informal systems in Title IX matters.

How should campuses ensure fair processes for both parties when utilizing informal resolution in Title IX cases? Who should be responsible for conducting informal resolution options, and what skills do these personnel need? What options do institutions have to deliver informal resolution? What are the potential benefits and challenges of different forms of informal resolution? What are the promising practices and practices to avoid? This two-day, 10-hour live virtual training allows registrants to participate in formal resolution practice sessions with realistic scenarios to develop core informal resolution skills. Attendance for the two days is mandatory for completion. 

Join Peter Lake and Kristine Goodwin to explore these and other issues related to conducting informal resolution in Title IX cases. Peter Lake is a higher education law and policy expert and past professor of alternative dispute resolution. Kristine Goodwin is a former higher education administrator and trained mediator to explore these issues.
