Title IX prohibits all forms of sex discrimination in education programs and activities in federally funded schools at all levels. The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) amended the Clery Act to add new crimes of sexual violence to a school’s Clery Act reporting obligations. VAWA overlaps with Title IX because VAWA Crimes are always a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.

This group is for postsecondary education professionals to come together to discuss topics related to Title IX and VAWA compliance. Group members share best practices, ideas, thoughts, reflections, and resources to help colleagues improve compliance.
