Sexual Misconduct Response & Prevention

Status of the 2024 Title IX Regulations

A federal court in Kentucky has issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting the Department of Education from enacting, implementing or enforcing the new Title IX regulations that were scheduled to go into effect on August 1, 2024.  The court’s injunction applies to Virginia and five other states.  Two other federal courts have issued similar injunctions affecting other states.  

While this preliminary injunction remains in effect, the University will continue to be subject to the Title IX regulations issued in 2020.

We are closely monitoring the developing legal landscape and will provide additional updates in the future.  What remains constant, is our commitment to prohibiting and responding promptly and equitably to reports of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct. 

Questions about Title IX compliance can be directed to Kris Henderson, Director of Compliance and Title IX Coordinator,, 804 289-8186.
