College and University Boards Advised to Become and Remain Informed of Sexual Misconduct on CampusOn October 28, 2013 by Schnader
Many colleges and universities are currently defending against lawsuits, federal investigations, and negative publicity over sexual assaults on campus. In response, the Association of Governing Boards of Universities issued an Advisory Statement on Sexual Misconduct. The suggested best practices and discussion points for governing boards, reviewed in this Alert, serve as a reminder that colleges and universities should review their Title IX policies and procedures, as well as the related provisions of the Clery Act, Campus SaVE Act, and FERPA as they relate to sexual misconduct. Contact us for assistance in taking the necessary steps for compliance and implementing the AGB’s proposed best practices.
