Course Objectives and Faculty

Course Objectives: 

The American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity’s Professional Development and Training Institute (PDTI) is offering a new course entitled “Civil Rights Investigations Under Title VI and Section 504.” The course will cover the laws, policies and investigative strategies for compliance with the two laws that require nondiscrimination in programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance. This is a sixteen (8) hour program.

Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000d et seq., was enacted as part of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. This statute is enforced by the agencies awarding financial assistance, which may include financial aid or grants for transportation, health, labor and employment or education programs. Such tasked with enforcing these laws include the offices for civil rights at the Departments of Transportation, Health and Human Services, Labor and Education.

Section 504, Rehabilitation Act of 1973, provides: "No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States . . . shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance . . . ." As with the other laws, Section 504 is enforced by the agencies granting the federal financial assistance. At the Department of Health and Human Services, for example, organizations covered include many hospitals, nursing homes, mental health centers and human service programs. Programs or activities covered by these laws range may include a department, agency, special purpose district, or other instrumentality of a State or of a local government; colleges and universities or other postsecondary institutions; an entire corporation, partnership, or other private organization, or an entire sole proprietorship principally engaged in the business of providing education, health care, housing, social services, or parks and recreation. If a recipient of federal assistance is found to have discriminated and voluntary compliance cannot be achieved, the federal agency providing the assistance may initiate fund termination proceedings or refer the matter to the Department of Justice for appropriate legal action. Aggrieved individuals may file administrative complaints with the federal agency that provides funds to a recipient, or the individuals may file suit for appropriate relief in federal court.

AAAED Training: AAAED’s Professional Development and Training Institute (PDTI) will train the participants regarding the above laws, related policies and investigatory techniques in the event of a complaint of discrimination. Training will also cover the history of these laws, coverage and jurisdiction, the enforcement mechanisms for noncompliance with these federal programs, remedies for discrimination, the role of the federal enforcement agencies, and litigation. The training on Sec. 504 will also include a discussion of the relationship between Sec. 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Objectives: Participants taking this training will obtain an understanding of the laws discussed, the regulations and relevant policies related to these laws including remedies for noncompliance. Individuals will also learn about complaint processes and investigative techniques, both internal and external, standards of proof of discrimination, and the administrative and judicial enforcement processes. Who Should Attend: Equal Opportunity Professionals, Diversity and Inclusion Professionals, Title VI Coordinators, Section 504 Coordinators from organizations/institutions receiving federal financial assistance in education, housing, transportation, municipalities (police, fire, emergency, public works), departments of corrections, hospitals; legal advisors, consultants, et al.
