Inside Higher Education: New Title IX Regulation Sets Location-Based Boundaries for Sexual Harassment Enforcement

Read Inside Higher Education: New Title IX Regulation Sets Location-Based Boundaries for Sexual Harassment Enforcement, by Greta Anderson, from Inside Higher Ed, May 12, 2020.

I have many opinions about the new Title IX changes. One of them has to do with the limitations about enforcement and adjudication of incidents that newly occurred within an activity or location they control, such as a house owned by a recognized fraternity, sorority or other student group.

I worry that victims and survivors will now have to determine whether an incident can and will be adjudicated based on its location. With so many other barriers for reporting incidents, now putting the burden of making sure it falls within an institutional activity or venue just adds to the many reasons people may not report their incident.

“Jordan Draper, assistant vice president of student affairs and dean of students at the College of New Jersey, said it’s “natural” to apply Title IX to incidents involving students off-campus, where a majority of the college’s reported sexual assaults occur.

“It feels very disingenuous to treat a sexual assault on campus differently than off-campus,” said Draper. “How do you explain that to a student — your friend was off-campus so they get this process, while you were on campus so you get this process.”
