Lecture by Russlyn Ali, US Department of Education

Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Russlyn Ali will deliver the Vivian R. Shaw Lecture for the University of Michigan Institute for Research on Women and Gender and Women's Studies Department. Her lecture will reaffirm the priority of ensuring that educational institutions around the country know that Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits all forms of sex discrimination. Under the direction of Secretary Arne Duncan, the US Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is vigorously leading efforts to ensure all students are afforded a safe learning environment under Title IX. The Assistant Secretary will highlight the OCR's guidance on key Title IX areas, including equal access to athletic opportunities, sexual violence, gender harassment and bullying.
