Webinar: Discussing the Title IX Final Rule

 

​​On November 29, 2018, the Department of Education issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that significantly amends the department’s existing Title IX regulations. The American Council on Education (ACE), along with 60 other higher education associations, submitted comments on the proposed rule this past January, as did nearly 125,000 other interested stakeholders. Since January 2019, the Department has been reviewing these comments as it prepares to issue a final rule, which is expected sometime in January or February 2020.

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 two to three days of the rule’s release. The webinar will provide an 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. Join us 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 stakeholder’s 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.
