Opening General Session and Keynote Presentation | Title IX Updates

Ballroom A

This opening general session will focus on the anticipated final rule that the Department of Education is expected to publish during the fall of 2019 regarding institutions’ obligations for the adjudication of campus sexual misconduct under Title IX.  In the absence of a final rule, we will present a timely discussion of the state of Title IX compliance under the anticipated final rule.  In either case, the speakers will present a detailed program on the state of institutional compliance obligations, anticipated timelines for compliance, and, most importantly, the challenges to implementation by colleges and universities on one of the most important and difficult legal, social, and educational issues confronting schools today.
