2012 Webinar Series
Title VI Compliance for Colleges and Universities
Colleges and universities who are recipients of federal financial assistance must comply with many federal equal opportunity (EO) statutes including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color and national origin by recipients of federal financial assistance. This law and its accompanying regulations are enforced by federal agencies that award grants of assistance, including the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.
The webinar will cover the panoply of issues that colleges and universities must address in order to be in compliance with Title VI, beginning with an overview of the statute, coverage, the breadth of issues included from admissions to athletics, types of adverse actions, and complaint investigations. Hostile environment and bullying as matters prohibited by Title VI will also be addressed. In addition the webinar will cover preventative measures and responsibilities of faculty, staff and students.
