Title IX Regulations 2020

May 26, 2020

Dear UC Family,

On May 6, the Department of Education released new Title IX regulations.  Like every university across the country, we have assembled a team that is carefully reviewing the new regulations and the extensive accompanying commentary, and determining how to implement these new requirements.

Although the release of these new regulations coincides with a time of uncertainty as we navigate a global pandemic, I want to assure you that we are approaching this matter with an abundance of care.  Our institutional values of innovation, inclusion and impact will guide us in exercising due diligence so that our new policies and procedures will be fair for all parties involved.  We strive to ensure that gender equity and inclusion are not mere concepts, but lived realities for every single person at this university.   

Thank you in advance for your patience as we continue to work through these regulations and undertake this process.  

As a reminder, even though we are working and learning virtually, we continue to provide complaint resolution and support services for the UC community.  If needed, please reach out to the following:  

Office of Gender Equity & Inclusion

Counseling and Psychological Services

Anonymous Reporting Hotline

In the meantime, our expectations remain clear – that we treat each other with dignity and respect.  

Warm regards,
Bleuzette Marshall
VP for Equity, Inclusion & Community Impact
