Anticipating Title IX Changes in 2024 Webinar

  • Price: FREE


The US Department of Education plans to release significant changes to Title IX regulations this spring. Successfully implementing such changes in ATS seminaries will require not only revisions to existing policies and procedures, but also strong communication and updated training plans. With limited time and multiple priorities, how can Title IX officers and others involved in the Title IX process effectively lead these changes on their campuses?

Join the CHANGE Initiative and Title IX experts from ATS institutions for an interactive and practical webinar that will:

  • Discuss anticipated changes to Title IX and their implications for ATS institutions
  • Help you identify a plan for revising and implementing new Title IX policies, procedures, and trainings
  • Identify resources available to ATS institutions to support their work in Title IX to ensure a safe and inclusive environment
  • Nurture connections between Title IX leaders in ATS seminaries

This webinar is particularly relevant for Title IX coordinators, student services personnel, other seminary personnel involved in the Title IX process, and anyone committed to fostering safety and inclusion on seminary campuses. Presented by the ATS Pathways Coordination Program for all interested ATS member schools, this webinar will be recorded for replay.
