Title IX Campus Sexual Assault: Resources on the Department of Education's Proposed Regulations

December 30, 1899


Comments due Jan. 28


On November 16, 2018, the U.S. Department of Education issued its long-awaited notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) regarding additional regulations implementing Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.  

The NPRM procedure is required by the federal Administrative Procedure Act, except in limited cases of emergency rulemaking. It provides the public with an opportunity to review, consider, and comment on draft regulations before they are finalized.

The public focus of these proposed Title IX regulations has been on sexual harassment and assault occurring in the postsecondary educational context. However, the proposed regulations also are applicable to K-12 educational environments supported by federal funding.

The NPRM was officially published in the Federal Register​ Nov. 29, marking the start of a 60-day period for public comment by any interested party. Comments are due Jan. 28, 2019.  ACE will be drafting comments after completing a full assessment of the changes.​

ACE has assembled this non-exhaustive selection of materials as a resource for institutions and individuals wishing to assess the proposed regulations and consider commenting.
