Wash. U. plans to reject the new changes to Title IX outright, which we commend, but it is important for students to share their disapproval, too.
The Title IX investigation process is slated to change in accordance with a proposal from U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Washington University plans to submit a comment to the Department of Education alongside the other institutions in the Association of American Universities detailing its objections to the proposal.
Washington University administration and student group Title Mine held a focus group for the redesign of the Title IX website Oct. 18. This focus group is a part of a larger Title IX reform effort to create implementation groups, which are individualized committees working on different aspects of Title IX reform.
Student group Title Mine addressed changes to Washington University’s Title IX system with a statement posted to Facebook Sept. 4.
The statement details the demands that have been met, demands that are in progress and those that have not been met. It also explains what Title Mine organizers are currently doing in response to the changes.
