Summary

 

The long-awaited new Title IX regulations were released today by the U.S. Department of Education, codifying for the first time sexual assault grievance proceedings.

The new rules narrow the definition of sexual harassment, and classify domestic violence, dating violence and stalking as forms of gender discrimination that institutions must address under Title IX.

Colleges and universities will be required to hold live hearings, where student accusers and the accused can be cross-examined.

Institutions are responsible for investigating only incidents that occur in their programs or activities, and only complaints that are filed through a formal process to the proper officials.

Institutions can also choose which evidentiary standard to use to find students responsible for misconduct.

This includes responsibility to investigate allegations of off-campus misconduct.

The new rules will take effect on August 14, 2020.
