All educational institutions observe Title IX, but why? Throughout this interactive breakout session, Dr. Karen Logsdon and Title IX Intern Nicole Posluszny will reinforce the idea that Title IX supports all students and employees, debunking myths that surround the legislation and exposing students to the prominence of Title IX as it pertains to their college experiences.
