Sexual assault prevention and Title IX compliance have always been critical goals for colleges and universities, but these laws and institutional obligations have become increasingly complex. Higher education now faces scrutiny from federal agencies, the media, students, parents, and the community, and the threat of complaints and litigation is ever-present. 

Jackson Lewis’ Higher Education Group is pleased to present a four-part webinar series covering everything colleges and universities need to know to navigate these waters,  all while staying true to institutional missions and core values.
