GICA Compliance Collaborative Program

Title IX – Hearing Panel Members
(For GICA CCP Schools Only)

GICA is hosting an online training created exclusively for Compliance Collaborative members. If you are unsure whether you represent a Compliance Collaborative member school, please contact  Judy Spain.  If there are other folks on your campus that would be interested in attending this in-person training, please forward this information on to them.

Join your colleagues for an in-depth training designed to provide Hearing Panel members, as well as Title IX Coordinators, Deputy Coordinators, Investigators,  Advisors, Appeal Officers, HR personnel, and anyone associated with administering Title IX with an understanding of current compliance requirements for Live Hearings.

The role of the Hearing Panel members has changed with the adoption of the new Title IX Final Rule.  Panelists/decision-makers now play a more active role in the Live Hearing.  Individuals who are serving in this important function need to understand their responsibilities and duties.  

This training is designed to provide a base knowledge of the role of the Hearing Panel members.  Since institutions do have some flexibility in determining how a Live Hearing is conducted, each institution is strongly encouraged to also provide institution-specific training of Hearing Panel members.

  • If you sign up for a location, please do not cancel since it is difficult to reschedule and other individuals who wanted to attend this session will not be able to do so.


  • When you sign into the session, be prepared to turn on your webcam and actively participate. 
  • This is the only half-day training sessions for 2020-2021 focusing on Hearing Panel members.     
  • If you attended the Title IX Investigator training, the materials and videos used at that training are different than what is used in this training.  There will be minimal repetition of previously covered material in the first hour (overview).
