CUNY Turns Down New Title IX Restrictions

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–On Tuesday, Jan. 29, CUNY released their formal response to new Title IX regulations that were proposed by the U.S. government on Nov. 16, 2018. The response was not what the federal government would’ve hoped to hear. Led by Brooklyn College President Michelle Anderson, who has expertise in rape law, and a group of CUNY representatives, it concluded that the proposed changes to Title IX would weaken needed protections for students and degrade both safety and equality on CUNY campuses.

“Throughout this process, my focus was, is, and always will be on ensuring that every student can learn in a safe and nurturing environment,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
