Transgender Students and Employees: How to Comply with the Latest Title IX Guidance
Creating an all-inclusive environment that will protect transgender students and staff as well as your college or university
The recent guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) and Department of Justice (DOJ) makes it clear that the gender a student identifies with must be considered the student’s sex where Title IX is concerned. Although the guidance doesn’t carry the force of law, any institution that does not comply could risk losing its federal funding.
If you’re in education, it’s critical that you know exactly what is expected of you and your institution, and what your obligations are under Title IX. The Obama administration has made it clear that the “obligation to ensure nondiscrimination on the basis of sex” includes transgender students and staff. Among other things, it means that you must provide equal access to all campus activities.
So how do you ensure that your programs and activities are accessible to all, especially in light of this guidance? What can you do to protect all students, including those who identify as transgender? And what are the risks if you don’t comply?
Get answers to these questions and more when you order Transgender Students and Employees: How to Comply with the Latest Title IX Guidance.
