New Title IX Regulations
On May 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education released their comprehensive Title IX regulatory changes. This new federal law applies to members of the Michigan Tech community, including students, faculty, and staff, and ensures the right to be free from sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. The services and resources that are available through the Title IX office will continue, as will our work toward ensuring that we stop, remedy, and prevent the recurrence of all reports of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and gender discrimination. There will be changes in our policies and procedures for the August 14, 2020 deadline as this is inevitable, but we hope these changes illustrate our commitment to a just and respectful community free from discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct.
