From the Frontlines: Executive Director Update 

Brett A. Sokolow, ATIXA Executive Director, provides an update on the association and the field in a new edition of the weekly column, From the Frontlines.
I have been struck this week by the soft impact that the Wesley College OCR Resolution seems to have made as it landed on our desktops. If I can strongly encourage you to read this letter and/or ATIXA's summary of it, I think you will find two significant meta-messages within this letter that will eventually come to be seen as watershed shifts in our consciousness around Title IX.
