  • NASPA’s Initial Analysis of the Proposed Rule on Title IX, Part 1

    Just before the Thanksgiving holiday, the Department of Education released the text of their Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on Title IX. This ended an over-year-long wait that started in September 2017 when Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos rescinded guidance set by the Obama administration in 2011 and 2014 and released interim guidance.This is the first in a series of posts by NASPA staff from the Research and Policy Institute (RPI) and Culture of Respect to be released over the first half of December with our initial analysis of the proposed rule. Our hope is to provide information in an easily consumable format and length as soon as possible. Additional analysis on many of these topics is already available from a wide range of associations and organizations and NASPA’s RPI will be making more in-depth analysis on several of the issues below available in early January to assist student affairs professionals in responding to the call for comment with appropriate research and data.
