Title IX Advisor for College Professors in Iowa

Title IX of the Education Amendments is a federal civil rights statute that protects students attending higher education institutions from gender discrimination. Its enforcement prompts Iowa colleges and universities to act when they receive complaints containing gender-based discrimination.

Title IX can be applied in a broad range of intercollegiate issues throughout the years, but recently, it's most commonly utilized in cases that involve sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct is being committed at epidemic-like rates on college campuses, and if you haven't been living under a rock over the past couple years, you've seen the statistics and read the stories. News outlets have continuously covered the alarming rates of sexual misconduct in populous Iowa state colleges, citing many incidents of sexual misconduct every school year.

In any and all of its forms, sexual misconduct falls under the realm of gender discrimination under federal law. Therefore, when colleges receive word of an incident, colleges and universities generally conduct an investigation, hold a hearing, and enforce disciplinary actions if a perpetrator is found responsible for the alleged sexual misconduct. 

Due to pressure from the general public, survivors, and federal entities, higher education institutions cannot afford to make the mistake of mismanaging or ignoring cases. Allegations will not be taken lightly, and the stigma these allegations carry will undoubtedly affect all aspects of your life. This is why it's critical for college professors who have been accused of sexual misconduct to seek experienced and strong legal counsel. 

Why You Need Legal Representation

The damage to a professor's career, with or without tenure, can be utterly devastating. While we believe wholeheartedly that sexual misconduct is unacceptable under any circumstances, we also maintain that accused faculty should also be afforded civil rights and due process under the law. 

As much as you would like to believe schools are always fair, sometimes they don't play by their own rules. In a swing of the pendulum, institutions that were once lax and arguably apathetic in their approach to adjudication are now aggressively pursuing complaints - all due to the Department of Education's letter that subtly threatened to strip funding in schools who ignored victims. As a result, the repercussions for the falsely accused are life-altering. With the help of a seasoned Title IX defense attorney, college professors can keep their rights intact, hold the school accountable for any inequity, and achieve an impartial and fair trial. 

Iowa Title IX Advisor

Even the most organized school system isn't prepared to play investigator, judge, jury, executor, and appellate court for sexual misconduct. Higher education institutions are bound to make mistakes that can cost innocent people their livelihood, reputation, and even freedom. 

If you are a professor at a college or university and have been accused of sexual misconduct in Iowa, it's imperative you retain legal counsel. Experienced Title IX defense attorney Joseph D. Lento has helped professionals in your predicament achieve true justice in what's been labeled a “flawed system” by both survivors and respondents.
