​The Department of Education on May 6 released its long-anticipated final rule significantly amending the department's existing Title IX regulations.

Given the importance of this final rule, and the intense interest among various campus stakeholders, ACE provided a “just in time" webinar on Monday, May 11, at 2:00 pm (ET), providing a high-level overview of key provisions and takeaways for presidents, chancellors, and other senior campus leaders with Title IX responsibilities.

Colleges and universities are committed to upholding Title IX and to creating campuses that are safe, supportive, and responsive for all students so they can benefit from the widest possible array of educational opportunities. Watch the recording to hear from several experts on this topic to learn about provisions in the new rule, any changes made in response to higher education and other stakeholders' concerns, and key considerations for campus administrators as they prepare to implement the new rule. 

What Is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex under any education program or activity that receives federal funding. Sexual harassment, which includes sexual assault, is a form of unlawful sex discrimination prohibited under Title IX. In recent years, there has been significant and ongoing policy discussions among federal lawmakers, the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, colleges and universities, victim's rights groups, and other key stakeholders regarding the obligations of colleges and universities under Title IX to address the serious problem of campus sexual assault.

On Nov. 29, 2018, the Department of Education issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend the Title IX regulations. ACE, along with 60 other higher education associations, submitted comments on the proposed rule in January 2019, as did nearly 125,000 other interested stakeholders.
