The new Title IX regulations have been released, and the expert Title IX team at NACCOP and DSA (D. Stafford & Associates) has developed a virtual, live class to guide individuals on campuses who oversee the implementation and management of the hearing process for both students and employees.

Topics will include an overview of the requirements related to the hearing process; selection and training of decision makers; in person vs. virtual hearings; building and facilitating a hearing agenda; managing hearing participants; considerations in selecting institutional advisors; bias, questioning and cross-examination; evaluating relevant evidence; making a finding; specific considerations regarding employee cases; and the appeal process.

This 14 hour class will be held for two consecutive days from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm Eastern Time.

This is a live online class that will use technology to facilitate the presentation of the course material and small group exercises to enhance learning through active participation.

Our Title IX team has trained over 5,500 Title IX Coordinators and Investigators across the country and is well-known for delving into the practical application of Title IX. The NACCOP/DSA team, comprised of seasoned practitioners, has analyzed the changes from the 2020 Title IX regulations and is poised to help attendees practically apply the hearing process requirements. If further changes to the required processes are made by the Biden administration, those will be incorporated into this class.
