Information on the New Title IX Regulations

On May 6, 2020, the US Department of Education released new regulations regarding how schools address and resolve complaints of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence and stalking.  The date by which these new regulations go into effect is August 14, 2020.  At this time, the UC Office of the President and the UC Systemwide Title IX Coordinator are working to bring current policy and process for handling such complaints in compliance with the new regulations by the implementation date.  In keeping with current and past practice, until new policy, processes and procedures are put into place, individuals will be held to the policy definitions in place on the date of the alleged incident; and, the currently posted process and procedures will be used to address, investigate and resolve the complaint.
