The Four Corners include:

Investigation, discipline and grievance procedures, including data-gathering, reporting, appeal, and review
Victim and other impacted individual assistance, including understanding trauma issues and providing support in many forms including advocacy, counseling, security and academic assistance
Campus culture and climate, including conducting checks and surveys, and how to create a robust program of “voluntary compliance” in the spirit of the Title IX
The Primer is designed to assist campuses in creating a robust and comprehensive Title IX response system. The Primer includes a discussion of legal foundations and important definitions, in addition to an in-depth exploration of each of the Four Corners.
