Title IX Training Sessions

In an effort to promote increased awareness and understanding of our University’s responsibility related to Title IX compliance, the Office of Equity and Diversity is pleased to offer open educational sessions to our community.

Here are the dates, times and locations for upcoming sessions:

Title IX of the federal Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of a person's gender in educational programs or activities operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. Although it is often perceived as a law that applies only to athletic programs, Title IX is much broader and protects all students, employees, and visitors to campus from gender discrimination. Sexual harassment, including sexual misconduct, is a form of gender discrimination and is strictly prohibited by federal and state laws, and BGSU Policy.  

These 75-minute sessions will provide an overview of the regulations surrounding Title IX.  We will also discuss the University’s efforts to work within the expectations of the Department of Education and Office of Civil Rights, as outlined in the “Dear Colleague” letter issued to colleges and universities in April 2011.  

Title IX training sessions are also available upon request. To request a training session, please contact the Office of Equity and Diversity by email at  oed@bgsu.edu or by phone at 419-372-8476.

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance to acknowledge this professional development opportunity.
