Facilitated by Peter Lake, Charles A. Dana Chair and Director of Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy at Stetson University
Opening remarks and Title IX overview by David Marling, UNG Title IX Coordinator
Invited leadership will join the Provost at this webinar for UNG leadership. These speakers will facilitate a consideration of Title IX response systems and methods for enlisting faculty support for the mission of Title IX.
Title IX response systems and academic freedom can co-exist and be mutually supportive but not without careful attention to the balancing of sometimes competing interests.
How can we manage “trigger terms” in the classroom and run Title IX grievance systems without disrupting legitimate pedagogical goals and chilling core academic activities, including speaking on matters of public importance in public forums?
Peter Lake will offer detailed and practical suggestions on how to improve Title IX response systems while protecting and promoting academic freedom.
