The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is handling the investigation. In a statement, Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine E. Lhamon said, “We are making this list available in an effort to bring more transparency to our enforcement work and to foster better public awareness of civil rights.”

“We hope this increased transparency will spur community dialogue about this important issue. I also want to make it clear that a college or university’s appearance on this list and being the subject of a Title IX investigation in no way indicates at this stage that the college or university is violating or has violated the law.”

If any of the schools were found to be in violation of Title IX after the federal investigation, they will have to come to some resolution with the Education Department. This resolution can include rewriting policies, requiring staffing changes, or other, more serious, mandates. The Education Department can also refer the case to the Department of Justice or request a school be cut off from all federal funding.
