Why critics say a Trump-era Title IX rule hurts college coaches' ability to discipline athletes accused of sexual misconduct

Mar 4, 2022

Per Paula Lavigne: A Trump-era change to Title IX, implemented as part of a sweeping effort to strengthen due process, has made it too difficult to discipline college athletes accused of sexual misconduct, according to critics of the new rule.

The U.S. Department of Education instituted a rule change in 2020 that prohibits schools from imposing "disciplinary, punitive or unreasonably burdensome" sanctions during sexual misconduct investigations.
