Campus Sexual Violence: Know Your Rights
Transcript of Campus Sexual Violence: Know Your Rights
Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on sex, gender, gender identity/expression, and sexual orientation in education.
Addresses many aspects of campus life including sports, discrimination against pregnant or parenting students, women in STEM programs, sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and sexual violence.
Title IX ensures that students can access their civil right to education in an environment free from sex discrimination or gender-based violence.

Requires that colleges have Campus Resource Teams and offer primary prevention and awareness programming to all students and staff
Colleges submit an annual report to the CT General Assembly
Requires schools to track and report crimes that occur on campus, have school safety policies in place, and to inform the campus of risks to safety.
Expanded in 2013 with the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SAVE) Act to require reporting of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, as well as primary prevention programming related to gender-based violence.
Schools must provide students or employees reporting victimization with a written explanation of their rights, including the right not to report.
Be proactive in preventing sex discrimination on campus, including taking steps to eliminate harm and prevent it from happening again.
Provide reasonable accomodations to ensure students who are victimized are able to continue their education.
Establish a clear and equitable procedure for handling complaints of sex discrimination.

DEPT. OF EDUCATION ANNOUNCEMENT
On September 7, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced that the DOE was reviewing the 2011 and 2014 Title IX guidance and its enforcement.
On September 22, the DOE announced they were repealing the 2011 and 2014 guidance related to Title IX and released a Q&A document clarifying what schools were expected to do as policy is reviewed.
YOUR RIGHTS ARE STILL YOUR RIGHTS.
Title IX and the Clery Act are still the law and schools are still required to keep students safe and free from discrimination based on sex.
Connecticut state law requires affirmative consent policies, primary prevention programming, campus resource teams, and use of a "preponderance of the evidence" standard.
