Community forum on Title IX changes

Washington State University (WSU) community members are invited to attend an online community forum to learn about recent federal changes to Title IX that will impact WSU.

Title IX is the federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in programs receiving federal financial assistance. The U.S. Department of Education published new regulatory requirements for Title IX which include specific rights for pregnant students, additional employee training and reporting requirements, and updated procedures for responding to complaints of sex discrimination and sexual harassment, including sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, and domestic violence. The new regulations go into effect on Aug. 1. Policies and procedures for student and employee discrimination and harassment complaints will be updated over the summer. The new regulations also clarify that Title IX applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

During the community forum, the WSU Title IX Coordinator, Holly Ashkannejhad, will share information about the regulatory changes and how they impact the WSU community.
