Championing a Culture of Safety and Respect on Campus is Needed Now More than Ever

On November 16, the U.S. Department of Education announced draft regulations on Title IX that will make it harder for campus sexual assault victims to seek justice. In a new Medium post, Terri Poore, Policy Director for RALIANCE, argues that in the face of neglect from the Department, colleges and universities still have a responsibility to their students to uphold strong protections against sexual violence.

She wrote, “Even as the Department of Education turns its back on Title IX, the law remains unequivocal: educational institutions have a responsibility to prevent the things that create hostile environments, including sexual violence. This is why it’s important that our schools continue to treat campus sexual assault with the seriousness it deserves.”
