We offer Title IX assessment and training services to assist campus leaderships continued commitment to providing an environment safe and free from gender discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence. We use an experienced, multi-disciplinary team to conduct a comprehensive review and assessment of an institution’s compliance with Title IX across all departments and, where needed, recommendations for improvement in existing programs, policies, and resources.
Our methodology includes a deliberative and rigorous inquiry process involving key stakeholders and campus community members. For each area of focus, we develop thorough interview guides that the team uses to elicit facts, opinions, and perceptions of the areas under review. From these responses, we identify challenges and opportunities and develop recommendations to effectively address deficiencies and build upon existing strengths.
Our analysis and recommendations will assist the institution in its efforts to comply with the spirit and intent of Title IX, and the US Department of Education’s 2011 Dear Colleague Letter and the October 2014 Final Regulations to implement the changes made to the Clery Act by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA). We will identify, as appropriate to the scope of this project, best, promising and acceptable contemporary standards that could be used by the institution to achieve or adjust compliance practices, policies and procedures.
