Checklist: Title IX Coordinators — After the Regulations
Why Read This
Higher education institutions and K-12 schools that accept federal funding must comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, by educational institutions. In 2020, the Department of Education (ED) published new Title IX regulations that require Title IX coordinators to follow specific rules relating to sexual harassment complaints that fall under Title IX’s jurisdiction.
This checklist covers the detailed regulatory mandates relating to Title IX coordinators. In addition, the checklist includes United Educators’ (UE’s) recommended practices, such as such as steps institutions should take to help ensure your Title IX Coordinator is visible and readily accessible to the campus community and key knowledge and skills that coordinators should possess.
