In 2015 AAAED instituted it Title IX Institutes. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination by programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance. The Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education enforces Title IX and most colleges and universities are covered by this statute. In recent years OCR has been very aggressively enforcing this law, particularly as it relates to sexual harassment and assault.
Be sure to sign up for one of the AAAED’s Title IX institutes in order learn about the law and investigation techniques to remain in compliance. For more information please contact the AAAED national office at 202-349-9855, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
