Title IX can apply to acts to university faculty that are not committed within the scope of their employment. The reason is because Title IX, it's in part intended to prevent sexual harassment, sexual discrimination, sexual misconduct, for example, at a college or university. So if a student, for example, accuses a university staff member, be it faculty, professor, coach, whatever the case may be, even though it may take place off campus, whatever the alleged act would be, the school can still potentially pursue it under Title IX. Not to complicate the matter, but for example, university staff at almost all schools across the country, they're not allowed to have, say relationships with students, for example. But there could be, say a convention that takes place off campus or a sporting event obviously could take place off campus where an act can be allegedly perpetrated by a university staff or faculty where it could be potentially a Title IX violation. Title IX is a serious matter. University, staff, professors, whomever, have much to lose if the case is not handled properly. An experienced attorney advisor can help.
