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 This ended an over-year-long wait that started in September 2017 when Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos rescinded guidance set by the Obama administration in 2011 and 2014 and released interim guidance.This is the first in a series of posts by NASPA staff from the Research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.

This post provides relevant higher education policy updates for student affairs professionals between 11/27/2018 and 12/03/2018.
A Year of DACA in Congress
With a new Congress to take on the Hill in January, the current state of agency oversight and legislation under consideration is likely to change. The question of how oversight and legislation will be implemented remains. Since the academic year started this past fall, a number of newly-proposed or implemented immigration policies continue to pose potential threats for immigrant and international students, though again the question as to the pervasiveness of these threats remains. This post will explore the current state of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the likelihood for DACA to be considered under the 116th Congress, and implications for the higher education community. For updates on the broader range of threats to immigrants and international students, including implications pertaining to Public Charge and the Overstay Visa Policy, please tune in this afternoon Thursday, November 29, to a free 30-minute policy briefing update on national immigration policy.
