The National Association of Scholars strongly supports most of the proposed changes to Title IX, because they help to ensure fairness for both the accuser and the accused in cases of alleged sexual harassment. However, the regulations must be strengthened to prohibit double jeopardy, provide transparency for Title IX training materials, and establish the “clear and convincing” standard of evidence.
