No education-related compliance issue has proven to be more challenging, controversial, and consequential than compliance with Title IX. Schools throughout the country have important Title IX responsibilities and have been criticized—and in some cases sued—for failing to handle these matters with the diligence they deserve. The stakes are high for both institutions and members of school communities.
For the first time, well-known education law experts working in concert with Tulane University Law School have designed a gold-standard training program to professionalize the work of Title IX administrators. The certifications offered in this program are designed for education administrators and attorneys to enhance their knowledge of Title IX and develop best practices and critical skills necessary to professionally handle these important institutional obligations in a prompt, professional, and equitable manner.
“With the recent proposed changes to Title IX’s regulations and the non-stop litigation in this area, it became evident that Title IX personnel, education administrators, athletic directors, and attorneys alike all need a training program that combines essential Title IX legal principles with practical and unbiased advice on how to comply with Title IX in a fair and thorough way. We designed this program to do just that, providing our students with the foundations of the law as well as a deeper dive into the complexities of Title IX across the five specialization areas.”
– Joel Friedman, Director, Title IX Compliance Certification Program
Each session runs for six weeks with a two-week break between new course starts.

Welcome Message from our Program Director
“I am so excited to be teaching in the Title IX program at Tulane. As a civil rights attorney and advocate for girls and women in sports, I am forever grateful to those who came before me, because I was part of the first generation that benefited from the passage of Title IX. These courses fill the gulf between what experts and laypeople know. Title IX compliance in athletic departments is relatively straightforward. The law should be readily accessible, but currently, it is not.”
—Nancy Hogshead-Makar, J.D. -CEO, Champion Women; Advocacy for Girls and Women in Sports
“Professor Shipper was excellent in delivering the lectures and live classes. Also, the material she selected was very current, and relevant. This is by far my favorite Certificate Course so far!”
