Update on Title IX Announcement
November 29, 2018: On Friday, November 16, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights released draft amendments to the federal Title IX regulations. As of today, the draft regulations have been posted, which means the mandated sixty-day notice and comment period has officially begun. We are carefully reviewing the 149-page document and consulting with others to determine exactly what is being proposed and how the draft regulations could affect our own sexual misconduct policies and practices. In the meantime, see a chart that compares key elements of the proposed regulations with existing Amherst College policies and practices.
