What ED’s Title IX proposal means for your collegeNovember 27, 2018 |

The U.S. Department of Education last Friday released its long-awaited proposed regulations governing how institutions must treat allegations of sexual harassment to be in compliance with Title IX. Community college leaders will want to familiarize themselves with all aspects of the regulations, which differ from Obama administration guidance in many respects.
A full analysis of the regulations is beyond the scope of this article, and many aspects of the regulation have been reported in CCDaily and other press outlets, but a few key features of the proposed regulations are especially relevant to community colleges. It is also important to remember that the regulations are only proposed, and could change before they are finalized.
