Columbus State to host Title IX training March 24 and 25
Columbus State Community College will host a "Title IX Investigator Training School and Certification Course," Monday and Tuesday, March 24 and 25, from 9-5 p.m., in the Center for Workforce Development, 315 Cleveland Avenue, Columbus.
Colleges from around the region are invited to participate in the two-day session. It will be presented by Saundra K. Schuster, J.D., a partner with the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management and former general counsel for Sinclair Community College.
The course is offered by the Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA). The training will benefit those who work in student affairs or student conduct and need a new model for handling sexual misconduct cases, as well as those who work in campus law enforcement or HR and need to sharpen their civil investigation skills. Those investigating any type of civil rights complaint will benefit from this training, including those investigating hate crimes, gender bias, racial, religious, ethic, and other discriminatory acts against any group or protected class.
The deadline to register is Friday, March 14.
