Title IX Investigator Training Event – Photos


GRCC had the opportunity this week to host a 2-day regional training institute for the Association of Title IX Administrators. While Title IX has many implications for our institution, this event focused specifically on policy/procedure development and conducting investigations regarding sexual misconduct. The “Title IX Investigator Training School” drew a crowd of 90 participants, representing 20 institutions from 6 states (including Washington State, New York, and Pennsylvania.)
