On Nov. 16, 2018, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) released proposed regulations related to Title IX that will govern how educational institutions conduct inquiries into allegations of sex discrimination, including sexual misconduct. For a summary of key changes in the new regulations and UE recommendations, please see our Insights blog.
Once ED publishes the regulations in the Federal Register, a 60-day notice and comment period will follow. ED will then review submitted comments and publish the final regulations. Because of the expected high volume of comments and anticipated court challenges, it may be a considerable time before ED implements the regulations.
In the interim, institutions can use the resources below and our summary publication for suggestions on preventing and responding to campus sexual misconduct. However, institutions should first consult with legal counsel before making any changes to their policies or practices.

About This Resource

All higher education institutions and K-12 schools that accept federal funding must comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972. Title IX prohibits sex discrimination—including sexual harassment and sexual violence—by educational institutions. Title IX is enforced by the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). Years ago, OCR first required institutions to designate a Title IX coordinator. Since then, OCR has greatly expanded the role’s requirements. This checklist summarizes OCR’s recommended and required actions regarding sexual violence. Use it to review and, if necessary, revise your Title IX coordinator’s job responsibilities.
