Level Three – Two Days
Level Four – Two Days
Level Five – Two Days

What makes earning certification with ATIXA unique?

Title IX Coordinators all over the country continue to share with ATIXA their lack of clarity on the role, responsibilities, and the expectations the Department of Education has for their position. Campus administrators report confusion over whether there is more to the Coordinator role than being a designee for Office for Civil Rights (OCR) communications, who their campus Title IX Coordinator is, and what that person is supposed to do. With legislation, resolution letters, and open investigations continuing to affect our work as Title IX administrators, the Title IX Coordinator position continues to grow and develop over time.  This course will address these questions and the confusion about the responsibilities of a campus Title IX Coordinator. This comprehensive course is focused broadly on the role of Title IX Coordinators, Title IX compliance, investigations, athletics equity, and 504 disability compliance.

Attendees will follow a comprehensive curriculum conveying what every campus Title IX Coordinator needs to know to do that job and do it well. The four days will be intense, practical, and full of case studies and opportunities to apply the skills imparted in the training. You will not only spend four days with trainers who are some of the most knowledgeable experts on the topics, but also who are engaging and dynamic enough to hold your interest, keep you entertained, and take you from theory to practice with compelling case studies and relevant activities that take the content off the page and onto the campus.

Because of our deep involvement in litigation and OCR complaints, ATIXA trainings are designed to empower risk management for your school or college. Through our unmatched understanding of the legal landscape, our team is best positioned to help attendees provide a fair, impartial and equitable resolution of discrimination allegations that will reduce the risk of an OCR complaint or lawsuit by either party. Our goal is to help you ensure their rights, maximize your compliance, and respect the equal dignity of all participants in your process.

Description of Course

This comprehensive course is focused broadly on the role of Title IX Coordinators, all aspects of Title IX and VAWA/Clery compliance, oversight of investigations, and more. Two of the nation’s leading Title IX experts serve as faculty to convey what every campus Title IX Coordinator needs to know to do that job and do it well.

Every college and university in the country is required by the Department of Education to have a campus Title IX Coordinator, and to designate that individual to the  department and the campus community as a contact point for a Title IX communications and grievances. This administrator is responsible for coordination of all your institution’s compliance efforts on gender discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, sexual assault, athletics equity and related civil rights investigations.

Title IX Coordinators all over the country continue to share with ATIXA their lack of clarity on the role, responsibilities and the expectations the Department of Education has for their position. Campus administrators report confusion over whether there is more to the Coordinator role than being a designee for Office for Civil Rights (OCR) communications, who their campus Title IX Coordinator is, and what that person is supposed to do.With legislation, resolution letters and open investigations continuing to affect our work as Title IX administrators, the Title IX Coordinator position continues to grow and develop overtime.  This course will address these questions and the confusion about the responsibilities of a campus Title IX Coordinator. This comprehensive course is focused broadly on the role of Title IX Coordinators, Title IX compliance, investigations, athletics equity, and 504 disability compliance.

Your trainers are not just topic experts, but practitioners. Members of the faculty for this event have negotiated with OCR on behalf of colleges and universities, conducted investigations, run athletics programs, litigated Title IX cases, served as experts and submitted amici in Title IX cases, trained investigators, and have published extensively on this topic. We know it inside out, and after four days, so will you. This course will place you in the best possible position to respond to and defend institutional competence on discrimination grievances. As this is the only event of its kind, you can’t get this training anywhere else.

This event features a multi-disciplinary, engaging faculty with unmatched expertise, who have been writing, researching, litigating, enforcing, training and working in depth on Title IX for many years. As the leading source for Title IX expertise, ATIXA has now trained and certified more than 4,000 campus Title IX Coordinators across the country.

*NEW* Digital Badging

We are pleased to announce that ATIXA has partnered with Accredible to add digital badging to its ability to recognize and honor the 12,500 professionals who have sought certification training since 2012.

Digital badges are an increasingly popular tool for employees to denote their achievements, illustrate skill accumulation, and convey professional competence and excellence. A digital badge is an indicator of accomplishment or skill that can be displayed, accessed, and verified online. The badge includes information on who earned the badge, what the badge represents, how it was earned, when it was earned, and who issued it. Digital credentials allow employees to present a rich and trustworthy record of their professional development, easily shared on social platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as inclusion in email signatures.

Attendees of any Certification Course will now be able to expand their current options for verifying certification in a more public, visual, digital, and social, displaying badges for each certification so that colleagues, students, and potential employers can recognize your training and professional development. Attendees will receive notification following completion of the training on how to access their badge.

Two Day Hospital Title IX Coordinator Certification Training 

Overview

As you know, hospitals have long been tasked with Title VII Compliance, but now Title IX has been added to the mix as well. That said, an appeals court recently applied Title IX to a hospital residency program for the first time, and now you are wondering what you need to do as a result. Fortunately, we can guide you.

This recent case holds that hospitals with medical residency programs that accept federal funds are subject to the same requirements as educational institutions with respect to Title IX. This means that hospitals will need to designate a Title IX Coordinator, have equitable investigation and resolution procedures in place, comply with detailed OCR guidance, offer training to hospital staff and employees on Title IX, conduct Title IX investigations in a fair and timely manner, and remedy sex/gender discrimination in accord with OCR’s precepts.

Like Title VII, Title IX has many nuances to master. It is subject to dual enforcement, by agencies and the courts, but unlike Title VII, there is no EEOC consent to sue requirement under Title IX. The regulations on Title IX can lack clarity and we are already hearing from hospitals looking to engage outside assistance with their compliance efforts. This case encourages those in the health care industry to take the opportunity to review best practices for mitigating the risks associated with sexual harassment, sexual assault, and other hazards of operating medical residency and other educational programs – areas where our team can certainly assist.

ATIXA is already well-schooled in working in health care and hospital environments. We assist medical colleges, university hospitals, and college and university health services throughout the United States on a daily basis to meet their compliance requirements. One of our consultants is a former hospital administrator.

Through ATIXA, The Association for Title IX Administrators, we also offer a professional membership association to support individuals tasked with complying with Title IX which states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
