The Department of Education’s proposed rule on Title IX sexual assault was published in the Federal Register Nov. 29, marking the official start of the 60-day comment period.
The draft regulations will redefine the obligations of colleges and universities related to allegations of sexual misconduct and require significant changes to the processes institutions use to investigate and resolve such allegations.
The National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA) will present a webinar this Thursday, Dec. 13, to discuss the major features of the proposed rule and take questions from participate about its potential impact.
For more information and to register, see the NACUA website.
