RATIONALE: The U.S. Department of Education has proposed the most consequential changes in decades to Title IX, the federal law that governs gender and sex discrimination in educational contexts. These proposed regulations would require major changes in the ways that schools receiving federal funds respond to sex and gender issues, including sexual misconduct. The results would make it likely that schools implement a higher standard of proof for making judgements in cases of sexual harassment or assault, would allow for cross examination of students who put forward complaints, and would allow the use of alternative forms of resolution of disputes, such as mediation. All these changes are strongly opposed by advocates for the rights of students who experience sexual harassment and assault because they are likely to deter students from coming forward or conceal the existence of serious complaints. Because of the gravity and potential harm to individuals and the campus climate more widely, there is an urgent need for the responses put forward in this resolution, adding the of voice of SF State to widespread public opposition and proposing ways to mitigate the harm that would result from implementation of these proposed changes to Title IX regulations.
