Dear Education Leader:

This afternoon, OCR released a new webinar explaining how colleges and schools can comply with the Department’s anti-discrimination laws and regulations, including OCR’s new Title IX Rule, while fully safeguarding constitutionally protected speech.  We expect that this will be a helpful resource for educators, administrators, and organizations.

The webinar is available here:

If you have questions or require technical assistance, please contact  Also, please let us know if you have any ideas for additional areas that we might address in future video webinars. As a reminder, the Department’s new Title IX regulations will be effective on August 14, 2020.
