The U.S. Department of Education released proposed Title IX regulation changes on Nov. 16, 2018 that, if approved, will impact how higher educational institutions throughout the nation respond to sexual harassment reports. As institutions face the ever-changing Title IX legal landscape, training and compliance remain critical.
The proposed regulations are broad ranging and apply to many aspects of institutions’ policies and procedures. Most impactful is a new provision mandating that every institution hold live hearings with an opportunity for cross-examination.
The proposed federal regulations are now in the note-and-comment process, which closes 60 days from the date the proposed regulations are published in the Federal Register.
To learn more information about these Title IX proposed regulations as well as next steps in the rulemaking process, you are invited to participate in our training conducted by Gray Plant Mooty higher education attorneys who specialize in Title IX compliance and have worked with the Department of Education on these issues. The webinar is available online for a small fee. One of the presenters, Gray Plant Mooty Principal and founder of trainED Kathryn Nash, was also quoted in recent national media on the subject, including in The Atlantic and the Star Tribune.
