Title IX: New Sexual Harassment Regulations
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 was passed into law to ensure gender equality in educational programs and activities receiving federal funding. In May of 2020, the Department of Education released new regulations for colleges and universities related to sexual harassment under Title IX. Creighton University is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all community members and prohibits sexual harassment in all its forms.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to join us virtually as we explore the following:
- Define the elements of mandatory reporting, including when and how to report relevant behaviors.
- Explain the procedures and possible outcomes following submission of a Title IX report.
- Identify applicable policies, including scope and content.
- Discuss and analyze real-world examples.
