Training of University Administrators Involved in the Title IX Grievance Process
On May 19, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued a Final Rule under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The full text of the Final Rule and its extensive Preamble are available here. The Final Rule requires that schools make public the materials used to train the individuals who implement its sexual harassment policies and procedures.
