While federal laws like Title IX and the Clery Act provide a “floor” in terms of an institution of higher education’s requirements for addressing sexual violence, colleges and universities can – and should – consider how they may help reach a higher “ceiling” above and beyond compliance.
In response to the final Title IX rule issued by the U.S. Department of Education, and to help institutions prepare for the August 14, 2020 implementation deadline, Culture of Respect created the Title IX Guide: Going Above and Beyond Compliance. This guide provides a series of questions that: help institutions assess compliance with key aspects of the new Title IX rule; identify the source of this information in the rule; and most importantly, prompt institutions to examine key questions, considerations, and evidence-based practices that help institutions strengthen their prevention of and response to sexual violence, and create policies, programs, and procedures that help foster a culture of respect.
