What 7 experts want included in Biden's new Title IX regulation

Article here. Excerpt:

'One provision that I would like to see is to only require schools to provide notice to an accused perpetrator upon bringing sexual misconduct charges rather than upon a mere formal complaint being filed, as currently required by the Trump-era rules.

The current Title IX rules not only give notice to an accused student before an investigation begins, which is not best practice for sexual offenses, but also give the accused an opportunity to prepare a defense days before ever being questioned. There is already a risk of retaliation against victims upon making a report and there are many offenders willing to engage in evidence destruction and witness tampering to avoid accountability out there, so the current Title IX rule has been damaging to schools' ability to meaningfully investigate and protect survivors on campus.'
