NASPA Hill Days Live Briefing: Title IX and Campus Sexual Assault Response and Prevention

with Lindy Aldrich

About This Course

This first installment of the six part NASPA Hill Days Live Briefing Series is designed for both Hill Days participants and student affairs professionals across the country interested in building general knowledge on Title IX of the Higher Education Act, specifically related to campus sexual assault response and prevention, through an advocacy framework. This briefing will provide context on Title IX and the Department of Education Office of Civil Rights (OCR) within the current climate of the Trump Administration and what this means for various roles on campus. In addition, the briefing will include advocacy tips participants may use to begin engagement with their Congressional representatives and/or OCR staff. This is a stand-alone briefing that will provide foundational information for the July 2018 in-person Hill Days sessions and meetings and is recommended for those wishing to engage in direct federal advocacy on campus sexual assault response and prevention. This live briefing will be presented by guest speaker Lindy Aldrich, Esq., Deputy Director of the Victim Rights Law Center.
