Do colleges have their own rules for sexual misconduct cases?

In contrast to Title IX, where all colleges and universities and other institutions, as applicable, are going to be required to follow the new Title IX Final Rule, which went into effect on August 14th, 2020, colleges and universities are otherwise allowed to pursue and address and adjudicate college sexual misconduct under their own policies as they feel appropriate to create.

Schools will have their own policies. Some will be more expansive than others. Some will be more aggressive than others in the sense of pursuing alleged sexual misconduct against a respondent. Many schools, there may be variations on the theme, but they will have different policies. It's very important, if you're accused of sexual misconduct, that you understand the school's policy and that you have an experienced attorney advisor helping you throughout the process because so much is at stake.
