In the past decade, full-time Title IX Coordinators and Title IX offices have become more common for schools, colleges, and universities. Having pools of Title IX-trained personnel has even grown in popularity, both within and across organizations. With the 2020 Title IX regulations, the formation and operation of Title IX teams has become a necessity for recipients to achieve compliance.
