Title IX

Title IX: equality of opportunity

The Law School is committed to educational and employment environments that are free from discrimination and harassment by, between, and against its students and employees.  The Law School abides by all local, state, and federal laws and regulations that prohibit discrimination and harassment.  This includes Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, including its 2020 amendments, and American Bar Association Standard 205(b), which provides that “a law school shall foster and maintain equality of opportunity for students, faculty, and staff, without discrimination or segregation on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability.”

Title IX administrators received training in the Final 2020 Title IX changes from these sources

(Monday, May 11, 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.) On November 29, 2018, the Department of Education issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that significantly amends the department’s existing Title IX regulations. The American Council on Education (ACE), along with 60 other higher education associations, submitted comments on the proposed rule January 30, 2019, as did nearly 125,000 other interested stakeholders. After spending months reviewing the comments, the Department on May 6 issued the final regulations.Given the importance of this final rule, and the intense interest among various campus stakeholders, ACE is providing a “just in time” webinar on Monday, May 11, at 2 pm (ET). This webinar will provide an overview of key provisions and takeaways for presidents, chancellors, and other senior campus leaders with Title IX responsibilities.
