Hastings Journal on Gender and the Law


Tyra Singleton


Sexual assault is pervasive on college campuses across the country. Title IX mandates that school’s receiving federal funding protect student victims of sexual assault. Some campuses have gone further than the Title IX requirements and have created internal policies that are stacked against the accused and potentially reach the level of violating the accused’s constitutional rights. This note examines how Title IX has influenced academia and how unjust campus tribunals have caused accused male students to seek redress in federal courts for gender discrimination. This note will also examine the racial implications of Title IX and consider how race contributes to the treatment of the accused student.
