Implementing Regulations at:
20 U.S.C § 1681 & 34 C.F.R. Part 106
The disciplinary process of individual schools or university-related organizations does not supersede this policy. This policy does not negate the right of schools or organizations to institute their own disciplinary process for cases of sexual misconduct/assault. In addition to the criminal and student conduct processes, the victim of sexual misconduct or sexual assault may consider retaining a private attorney for the purpose of filing a civil action.
