Proposed Title 9 Regulations Under Review

Dec 20, 2018

Universities across the country are reviewing Trump administration proposed changes to rules governing how the institutions handle sexual assault and harassment cases, under Federal Title 9 law. University’s deal with cases through administrative processes that can result in punishments, including job loss and expulsion. According to a US Department of Education fact sheet, the proposed regulations rolled out last month (Nov) by Secretary of Education Betsy Devos seek to ensure schools understand their legal obligations. KUAC’s Dan Bross talked with a University of Alaska Fairbanks victim advocate, who has concerns about the changes.
