Attorneys general in 17 states and the District of Columbia sue over new Title IX regulations on sexual assault investigations on college campuses.
The proposals include increased defense spending, homeland security, veterans affairs, and commerce, which are offset with significant cuts across the board, including a 12-percent decrease in education spending—which could greatly affect student borrowers.
Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Boston College ’09, announced that he will be issuing a public comment to the U.S. Department of Education to challenge the proposals to change Title IX in a press conference Wednesday afternoon. The proposals aim to redefine how sexual harassment is defined and handled at colleges.
The Department of Education (DOE) released proposed changes to regulations regarding the implementation of Title IX, specifically focusing on the response of educational institutions receiving Title IX benefits to cases of sexual harassment and sexual violence.
