USD Law to Host Title IX Panel

Every university receiving federal funds is governed by Title IX, but very few students are able to articulate the policies and procedures regarding violations. In fact, many students believe Title IX to only effect athletics. In reality, the law applies to every single aspect of education, including course offerings, counseling and counseling materials, financial assistance, student health and insurance benefits and/or other services, housing, marital and parental status of students, physical education and athletics, education programs and activities, and employment.

What does a Title IX violation hearing look like? Can I bring an attorney to such a hearing? As an attorney, are your clients afforded all of the Due Process Rights as at similar hearings? Join us for a panel discussion to answer those questions and more surrounding Title IX.

  • WHEN: Monday, April 10th, 2017 5-7 P.M.
  • WHERE: USD School of Law Courtroom


  • Michelle Johnson, Ed.D., SDSU Title IX/EO Coordinator
  • David Herbster, Director of the USD Department of Athletics
  • Deborah Dodge, Director of USD Student Rights & Responsibilities

 Sponsored by Women In Law, Sports Law, BLSA, and OUTLaws

 Refreshments and a Taco Bar will be served after the panel.
