As the semester continues, you must be aware of your privacy obligations while handling sexual misconduct complaints and investigations. Now is the time to update your policies and practices to confirm your institution’s compliance and avoid serious and expensive mistakes.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) applies in cases regarding reported sexual harassment as defined by the latest Title IX regulations. Additionally, you must also understand how the Clery Act seeks to protect information as well.

It is necessary to follow regulatory requirements and your institution’s ethics of care while ensuring that your students are treated consistently and confidentially. At the same time, you may wonder how to protect other campus community members from alleged offenders in their midst if you cannot reveal the risk.
