Message on Title IX Enforcement and Sexual Misconduct

September 25, 2017

On Sept. 22, the U.S. Department of Education rescinded two directives on how to handle sexual violence and sexual misconduct that had been issued during the Obama administration. The federal government also issued new guidelines to be used while it develops new regulations to support Title IX. Webster University is committed to preventing sexual assault, harassment, discrimination and other forms of sexual misconduct. We want to assure our community that Webster's policy on Sexual Assault, Harassment and Other Sexual Misconduct will not be weakened by on-going reviews and reviews of this new guidance.
