ACE Letter to US Dept. of Education on Draft Title IX rules (1-30-19) 

Title IX Proposed Rules, Nov. 16, 2018, Office for Civil Rights, Department of Education*

See Inside Higher Ed for a summary of the proposed rules.  The DOE has posted a Section by Section Summary and a one page fact sheet.   Colleges may set their own evidentiary standard, are only responsible for misconduct that occurred within a college's own programs, and makes mandatory the ability of accused students to cross examine their accusers, but only advisers, not students themselves, could ask questions of the other party. The rule also narrows the definition of sexual harassment. See the Chronicle of Higher Education, What you Need to Know about the Proposed Title IX Regulations. See also the ACE Resource Page on the Proposed Regulation.
