In this interactive presentation, which will feature videos and case studies, we will provide an overview of what constitutes sexual harassment and the obligations that graduate students may have to combat it in their academic settings; the legal and regulatory trends that are starting to emerge regarding Title IX compliance; and resources available to those impacted by sexual harassment.
