New Regulations on Campus Sexual Assault

On May 6, 2020, The U.S. Department of Education announced sweeping changes in Title IX, the federal civil rights law that protects people in educational settings from discrimination based on sex. The changes impact how colleges handle sexual assault and sexual harassment complaints. The changes detailed in the 2,000+ page document were required to take effect on August 14, 2020. Adelphi University met the deadline for implementation and has remained in compliance with these regulations.

Office for Civil Rights Announcement

Discrimination, harassment (including sexual misconduct), and retaliation of any type will not be tolerated at Adelphi University. Upon notice, the University will act to end the discrimination, harassment or retaliation, prevent its recurrence, and remedy its effects on the victim and our community.

COVID-19 Update: During this time of remote operations, we will continue to review questions and complaints of possible discrimination. Individuals may email contact Allison Vernace, Interim Title IX Coordinator and Director of Equity & Compliance, at titleix@adelphi.edu or 516.877.4819—voicemail will be reviewed.
