The Department of Education (ED) is expected sometime in January or February to issue a final rule that significantly amends the department's existing Title IX campus sexual assault regulations.

Given the importance of this final rule and the intense interest among various campus stakeholders, ACE will be aiming to provide a “just in time" webinar within 2-3 days of the final Title IX rule's release. 

Offering public policy, legal and student affairs perspectives, ACE General Counsel and Vice President Peter McDonough and Director of Government Relations Anne Meehan, along with attorney Amy Foerster and Wake Forest University's Penny Rue, will deliver an overview of key provisions and takeaways for presidents, chancellors, general counsels, Title IX coordinators, government relations, student affairs and HR professionals, and other senior campus leaders with Title IX responsibilities.

The precise day and time of the Title IX webinar will be announced when the final rule is released. Please click here for more information and to request registration information as soon as the Title IX webinar is formally scheduled. Email questions to

Foreign Gift and Contract Reporting Information Collection Webinar

Meanwhile, ACE also will conduct a webinar providing an overview of ​ED's proposed expansion of the requirements pertaining to foreign gift and contract reporting under Section 117 of the Higher Education Act (HEA). This problematic enlargement of federal oversight was proposed Sept. 6, 2019, via an ED information collection request (ICR), which reached well beyond the scope of the law.

Comments on the proposed information collection closed Nov. 5. In mid-December, ED asked the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for an expedited review to finalize the ICR in time for the next reporting deadline for institutions, Jan. 31. OMB rejected that request, and ED withdrew it and on Feb. 10 resubmitted a proposal for an expanded ICR via the Federal Register and gave 30 days for public comment.

ACE Senior Vice President Terry W. Hartle and ACE Director of Government Relations Steven Bloom will discuss what is in the final information collection request and how it could impact colleges and universities.

This webinar will be valuable for presidents, provosts, general counsels, government relations officers, vice presidents of research, CFOs/ chief business officers, development officers, and any other campus leaders who are concerned with foreign gift and contract issues.

The foreign gift and contract reporting requirements webinar will be held ​after the final information collection request is released.
