Awareness Committee


In April 2024, the new Title IX regulations were released. Michigan Tech has until August 1, 2024 to implement new policy to ensure compliance with the new rule. Per the Department of Education, they believe the final regulations protect against all sex-based harassment and disrimination, promote accountability and fairness, and empower and support students and families. The new rule expands training requirements and reporting expectations for all staff and faculty. University personnel should expect to fulfill their training requirements later this summer. 


The new regulations have not explicitly addressed athletics. Our office will continue to monitor for any upcoming changes regarding athletics.
