OVS would like to announce a new webinar: The New Department of Education Title IX Regulations: What They Mean for Agencies That Serve Student Survivors in New York State. The Department of Education has issued long-expected Regulations around Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 that may have a substantial impact on how K-12 and higher education institutions are required to investigate and adjudicate certain disclosures of sexual harassment and violence. Laws in New York such as Education Law Article 129-B (governing the process of investigating and adjudicating sexual and interpersonal violence on college campuses) will impact what changes, if any, are made at higher education institutions. Further, litigation and other actions may delay or modify the impact of the rule. In this webinar, we will discuss
The definitions, requirements, and exceptions in the Regulations, and compare these to New York State law governing colleges and universities;
Offer an update on litigation and other potential changes that may impact implementation of the Regulations; and
Provide key information to answer questions that may come from student survivors
