Title IX Module 5: Title IX Determinations


On August 14, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education’s new and controversial Title IX Rule concerning allegations of sexual harassment takes effect. To assist institutions of higher education working to comply with the new rule, Thompson Coburn’s Higher Education Practice has created a free, online lecture series that provides foundational training for those individuals who will be administering the new Title IX process this fall, including Title IX coordinators, investigators, advisors, hearing officers, and appeal officers.  

Pursuant to the new rule, colleges and universities are required to train these individuals to carry out their roles. The training must cover certain, specified concepts, and institutions must post any training materials they use to their external websites, making them available to the public. Thompson Coburn’s training series has been designed specifically to assist institutions with fulfilling these requirements.  

In the Determinations module, Susan Lorenc, Scott Goldschmidt, and Aaron Lacey explore the new regulation’s requirements for written determinations of responsibility following a hearing. The module covers key concepts, the format and content of determinations, organizing facts and thoughts, excluding facts in evidence, weighing facts under applicable evidentiary standards, types of evidence, effective deliberations, and writing a defensible determination.
