    Title: Proposed Title IX Regulations
    Description:   

    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. These proposed regulations are subject to a 60-day notice and comment period. Following the end of the notice and comment period, 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 to better understand the proposed regulations. However, institutions should first consult with legal counsel before making any changes to their policies or practices.
