In light of the rescinding of two guiding pieces developed in President Obama’s era, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights has begun to obscure the protocol of handling issues related to Title IX for many college and university professionals and mandated reporters of the institution (Brown, 2017). This discussion is in support of strengthening Title IX’s guiding pieces from the Obama-era. Followed by the views that support Secretary DeVos’s rescinding of these pieces and an institution’s increased flexibility to manage incidents of sexual misconduct, the author will examine how these arguments dismiss the due process for student survivors of sexual misconduct. The author will conclude with an argument that highlights why the reimplementation of President Obama’s Title IX guidelines and procedures are desirable for our students’ educational success.
