Department of Education Announces New Title IX Regulations

On May 6, 2020, the United States Department of Education released new regulations under Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 related to sexual discrimination in education. FAU’s Office of Equity, Inclusion and Compliance and the Dean of Students’ Office are in the process of carefully reviewing our policies and regulations to ensure consistency with the new regulations before the August 14, 2020 effective date.

FAU will continue to comply with applicable federal, state and local discrimination/harassment laws to provide an educational, employment and business environment free of all forms of discrimination or harassment. The Office of Equity, Inclusion and Compliance will continue to work with the Dean of Students’ Office and our campus partners to offer services and educational programs designed to prevent and respond to prohibited sexual conduct and other forms of unlawful discrimination.

If you have any questions about Title IX or have been a victim of sexual misconduct, please contact FAU’s Title IX Coordinator, Donald Kamm at (561) 297-3004 or visit FAU’s Title IX website for information and resources.
