Title IX Proposed Amendments 2022

The U.S. Department of Education released proposed amendments to Title IX on June 23, 2022 – the 50th anniversary of the federal education law that prohibits sex-based discrimination. The 2020 Title IX regulations remain in effect while the federal rulemaking process is underway. The proposed amendments do not carry the force and effect of law and do not change any University of Cincinnati policy, process, or procedure related to sexual misconduct.

The proposed amendments are available in the Department of Education's Federal Register Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. Members of the public have the opportunity to provide comments and can do so via Regulations.gov. In addition, the Department of Education has released a fact sheet and a summary of the major provisions of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

Title IX protects every student’s right to educational programs and activities free from sex discrimination including sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence, and domestic violence. UC’s Office of Gender Equity & Inclusion (“OGEI”) coordinates the University’s comprehensive response to incidents of sex discrimination. Individuals can make a report and/or seek guidance from the University’s Title IX Coordinator and OGEI staff by email, phone, online, or in person.
