Princeton implements new Title IX/sexual misconduct policies following new federal regulations for colleges and universities

In May of 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued new regulations mandating how colleges and universities must investigate and adjudicate sexual misconduct cases under Title IX, the federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs or activities. As a result, like all educational institutions that receive federal funding, Princeton was required to amend its policies related to sexual misconduct by no later than Aug. 14.
