Title IX Training
Title IX training stems from a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex or gender in educational institutions that receive federal funding. Sexual misconduct and sexual harassment are both forms of sex discrimination.
A comprehensive Title IX training program plays an important role in educating students and faculty and staff on their rights and responsibilities to address, report and prevent sexual misconduct, and foster a safe, respectful learning and working environment.
Title IX Protections
Enforced by the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, Title IX protects all students, faculty, staff and employees from sex discrimination. Title IX also protects individuals from retaliation for filing a complaint of sexual misconduct or participating in an investigation.
Title IX requires universities and colleges to implement policies and procedures for preventing sexual misconduct and processing complaints. This includes appointing a Title IX Coordinator, responding to all complaints of sexual misconduct, and designating employees, who must report incidents to the coordinator.
Traliant’s Title IX Suite is available in three versions:
Title IX: Preventing Sexual Misconduct for Faculty & Staff – This 30-minute course explains sexual misconduct and the rights and responsibilities of faculty and staff under Title IX. It also describes other laws that address discrimination and harassment. Faculty and staff gain insights and practical information to help them respond to and prevent inappropriate behavior and promote a safe, respectful learning environment.
Title IX: Preventing Sexual Misconduct for Students – This 30-minute course explains the rights and protections of students under Title IX and their school’s policy related to this law. Students learn about the different types of sexual misconduct, the role of bystander intervention in responding to incidents, and other practical guidance for preventing harassment and discrimination and keeping the learning environment safe and harassment-free.
Title IX: Preventing Sexual Misconduct for Faculty & Staff with Reporting Obligations – This 40-minute course covers all the material in the Faculty and Staff course, with additional information on what employees with reporting obligations need to know about their duty to report sexual misconduct incidents they learn about directly or indirectly.
