Taking Stock of Title IX: The Past, Present, and Future of Campus Sexual Misconduct Regulation
12 PM GMT
More than seven years have passed since the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued its landmark 2011 “Dear Colleague” letter (DCL) governing institutional responses to sexual misconduct under Title IX. Hailed by many as a long-awaited clarification of the obligations imposed by federal anti-discrimination law, the 2011 DCL and an accompanying 2014 guidance document necessitated comprehensive policy changes at colleges and universities nationwide, sparked a searching national conversation about how best to respond to campus sexual misconduct, and precipitated a wave of litigation filed by both reporting victims and accused students and faculty. Following OCR’s rescission of the 2011 and 2014 guidance last September, however, uncertainty abounds today in this rapidly evolving area of regulatory law. With new federal rulemaking forthcoming, how should Title IX’s promise be realized? What lessons might practitioners, regulators, administrators, students, and faculty learn from the past seven years, and how should colleges and universities move forward?
