Comment Period on New Title IX Sexual Violence Rules Now Open
Want to provide input on the proposed Title IX sexual misconduct rules? You have until Jan. 28 to submit your comments.
The U.S. Federal Register today formally published the U.S. Department of Education’s Title IX Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, beginning the 60 day period when individuals and organizations can comment on the proposed rules.
The proposed rules would reduce campus liability exposures, provide more support for sexual misconduct victims and bolster the rights of students who are accused of sexual assault, harassment or rape. When the new Title IX rules are finalized, they will carry the force of law.
The new rules proposed by DeVos are being applauded by men’s rights groups but are receiving push back from victim advocates.
