Dear Colleague Letter 2017

Office for Civil Rights (OCR), 2017

The Department of Education (ED) withdrew the Dear Colleague Letter on Sexual Violence dated April 4, 2011, and the Questions and Answers on Title IX Sexual Violence dated April 29, 2014. This letter provides details on why the previous documents were withdrawn. ED refers you to the Q&A on Campus Sexual Misconduct (PDF), issued contemporaneously with this letter, and will continue to rely on its Revised Sexual Harassment Guidance, which was informed by a notice-and-comment process and issued in 2001, as well as the reaffirmation of that Guidance in the Dear Colleague Letter on Sexual Harassment issued January 25, 2006. This letter does not add requirements to applicable law.
