New Federal Title IX Regulations
On May 6, 2020, the Department of Education announced the new regulations (new window) regarding the duties of colleges and universities to address sexual misconduct under the federal nondiscrimination law known as Title IX, which take effect on August 14, 2020.
Over the summer, we carefully reviewed the regulations to determine how they affect our community and the University’s policies and procedures. The University recognized that it was critical to include members of our community, particularly students and faculty, as we navigated this review and revision process and formed a number of working groups to engage in this work.
The new regulations come more than a year after the Department of Education proposed changes to federal guidance regarding the duties of colleges and universities to address sexual misconduct under the federal nondiscrimination law known as Title IX. After their release in November 2018, Georgetown University administrators met with members of the community to evaluate the proposed regulations and submitted a formal comment to the department on January 31, 2019.
Please see below for the communications and information released by the University pertaining to the new Title IX regulations. You may contact any of the University’s Title IX Coordinators for more information or with any questions.
