New Federal Title IX Regulations: Changes to the Investigative Process

Learn how to change your current investigation practices to adhere to the new Title IX federal regulations.


New Title IX regulations are being proposed by the U.S. Secretary of Education. Under these sweeping new regulations, students accused of sexual misconduct may obtain greater protections and colleges investigating such complaints may face reduced liability. Institutions conducting their own gender-based and/or sexual misconduct investigations may be required to implement several changes. Expected changes coming to Title IX will likely affect:

  • Considerations for investigating off-campus incidents
  • Affording Due Process for respondents
  • Establishing a comprehensive evidence collection process
  • Putting in place live hearings and in-person cross-examinations and defining the roles of hearing panels
  • Setting expectations for record keeping and documentation

Join us for this webcast to carefully examine the new regulations and gain clarity on how your current practices and policies may be required to change to accommodate the new federal Title IX regulations.
