Department of Education Releases Proposed Title IX Revisions
The Title IX regulations were last amended in May 2020 by the Trump administration and faced an immediate—and largely unsuccessful—legal challenge. The Biden administration’s proposed regulations are a major departure from the current regulations. Among the changes, they expand the scope of covered conduct, eliminate many of the detailed Trump-era requirements for grievance procedures (including the controversial hearing and cross-examination requirements), make explicit protections for LGBTQI+ students, and add protections for pregnant students and employees.
