Required Training Materials for Title IX Personnel

The 2020 Title IX Regulations - specifically, 34 CFR §106.45(b)(10)(i)(D) - require that all materials used to train personnel involved in the Grievance Process (the Title IX Coordinator, investigators, decision-makers, and any person who facilitates an informal resolution process for an allegation of Title IX sexual harassment) must be made publicly available. Listed here are training materials covered by this requirement. Additional training is scheduled and materials will be added to this page as additional training is completed.

    • As the evolution of Title IX issues unfolded over the past years, there has been an increase in the legal complexities which campuses have had to successfully handle. For even the most sophisticated investigators, a need has arisen to find a learning space where they can deepen their expertise, connect with each other, and learn from each other’s brightest lessons, pitfalls, and inquiries.

      Join us for our advanced-level certification training specifically designed for seasoned investigators with three or more years of experience adjudicating Title IX cases for their respective campuses. This hands-on virtual conference will provide experienced investigators with the opportunity to meaningfully deepen their knowledge and increase their capacity to investigate some of the most complex Title IX cases in higher education.

      With the help of our expert speaker panel, you will dive deeper into the following topics of managing complications in sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination cases, such as:

      • Dating, domestic violence, and stalking cases
      • Cases involving students with special circumstances (e.g., students with mental health concerns or registered disabilities, students who study abroad, minors, employees of the institution, pregnant or new parent subjects, student athletes, etc.)
      • Interview and deposition-style techniques and strategies
      • Analyzing inconsistent or incomplete witness testimonies
      • Tips and strategies for making the most informed decisions possible
      • Conducting an advanced credibility assessment
      • Successfully compiling the final investigation report
      • Dating, domestic violence, and stalking cases

    • In this session of Ankura’s monthly Title IX and Civil Rights Investigations webinar series, Dan Schorr and Alyssa-Rae McGinn will be joined by Franczek P.C. partner Jackie Gharapour Wernz for a discussion of the important issues related to complainant and respondent advisors in Title IX investigations. Topics will include the role of the advisor during an investigation or hearing, the impact of the Department of Education’s new Title IX regulations on this role, who should serve as an advisor, how to address advisors who are disrupting an investigation or hearing, and the advisor’s role in cross-examination. The webinar will also examine how the role of an advisor differs in K-12 vs. higher education processes.

      As external investigators working with educational institutions and other organizations, the presenters will draw upon experience investigating reports of sexual misconduct, intimate partner violence, and gender-based and racial harassment involving students, faculty, and staff to discuss relevant legal requirements and policy considerations while responding to your questions and comments. The webinar will incorporate the latest requirements and guidance from the Department of Education’s new Title IX regulations.
