  • On April 24, 2015, the Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) published a new Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) and a letter directly to Title IX Coordinators, as well as a new 25-page Title IX Resource Guide. These reflect OCR’s focus on ensuring that Title IX Coordinators have the appropriate authority and full support necessary from their institutions in order to perform their responsibilities.
