Title IX Updates

2020 Amendments

The Department of Education has revamped regulations regarding the Title IX procedural operations and protocols that all colleges and universities that receive federal funding must be in compliance with by August 14, 2020.  The regulations aim to provide a higher level of due process to parties involved in sexual misconduct investigations on college campuses.  One of the largest shifts in procedures is the utilization of a hearing panel and usage of cross examination between the parties involved with the allegations, in accordance with the guidelines for more due process.  The University of New Mexico's Title IX Coordinator, Angela Catena (acatena@unm.edu) has been working to ensure that UNM is in compliance with these federal regulations.  Below there are several documents that outline not only what the new regulations will look like, but also provide further insight into how they will be applied to the UNM campus community.
