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

Both K-12 and higher education institutions that accept federal funds must meet employee training requirements pertaining to sexual violence prevention and response under Title IX, and most higher education schools also have broadly similar but separate requirements for training their employees under the recently passed Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act.

This resource explains the different requirements under both laws and provides UE’s recommendations and suggestions to help institutions satisfy these training obligations.
