So to Speak podcast: ‘Dear Colleague,’ due process is now required. Title IX regulations analysis.

May 8, 2020

On Wednesday, the Department of Education published its long-awaited new Title IX regulations.

Over the years — and with the federal government’s prodding — Title IX has been twisted and used to justify censorship and the denial of core due process rights for those accused of sexual misconduct on America’s college campus. The new regulations will better protect certain free speech and due process rights long denied to students.

On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we are joined by FIRE Executive Director Robert Shibley and FIRE Senior Fellow Samantha Harris for a deep-dive analysis of the new regulations and the history of Title IX abuse on campus.
