Lincoln Memorial University works to maintain academic, housing, and employment environments that are free of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, domestic or dating violence, and stalking.   
On April 19, 2024, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights released new regulations under Title IX.  The new regulations mandate how universities must investigate and adjudicate reports of sexual harassment, as well as give support to complainants and students who are pregnant and parenting.   
University leaders are actively assessing the new Title IX regulations to gauge their potential impact on our Lincoln Memorial University campuses. Our commitment to transparency and inclusivity with our campus community remains a priority. Our current policy meets and exceeds the minimum requirements outlined in the current federal Title IX regulations and this will remain our priority going forward. 
Note that all stakeholders will be trained in the new regulations, including student leaders, student employees, and student athletes. 
If you have any questions about the new Title IX regulations, please contact Title IX Coordinator Becky Webb at Rebekah.webb@drfg529.com.
