It’s costly to mishandle incidents of sexual harassment and violence
Sexual violence, including harassment and rape, often goes underreported on university and college campuses. But even when higher education institutions are informed of sexual misconduct, they too often fail to abide by Title IX and the Clery Act laws in addressing the issue. And that failure can lead to a loss of federal funding.
Get the guidance you need to minimize your financial and legal risks and maximize your know-how for addressing sexual violence on your campus. Join Dr. Susan Strauss to get an in-depth explanation of the laws you must abide by: Title IX, the Clery Act laws, and Office of Civil Rights (OCR) guidelines. And learn how your institution can create a safer and more supportive environment for all students.
After attending this informative session you will understand the legal requirements for responding to incidents of sexual harassment and violence—and you’ll know exactly how to apply them in the real world.
