The Chronicle’s Title IX investigation tracker focuses on allegations of sexual assault

From the About page for The Chronicle’s Title IX Investigation Tracker:

This project tracks federal investigations of colleges for possible violations of the gender-equity law Title IX involving alleged sexual violence. It includes all investigations in this wave of enforcement: those either open now or resolved since April 4, 2011, when the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights issued a “Dear Colleague” letter exhorting colleges to resolve students’ reports of sexual assault — and to protect them throughout the process.

Here you can search federal investigations by institution or keyword; see which ones are open and which are resolved; filter them by status, state, and other factors; and learn the context. You can sign up for weekly alerts. And you can ask us questions or let us know how your college and others are responding to sexual assault. As we gather more information — like the federal investigations’ case files, which are coming in through the Freedom of Information Act — we will add it to the site.

This project is focused on federal enforcement. It does not document each step in state or federal legislation on campus sexual assault, colleges’ internal investigations of students’ reports, or related lawsuits.
