Title IX Investigations - Who? What? Why?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities by institutions that receive federal financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Education, and sexual misconduct may constitute discrimination prohibited by Title IX. When a school knows or reasonably should know of any incident of sexual misconduct, personnel must take immediate steps to understand what occurred (i.e., whether a hostile environment based on sex exists), and respond appropriately. We explore all the elements of Title IX compliance and how organizations should prepare to investigate complaints of misconduct including how to select the appropriate investigator.
