Office for Civil Rights Complaint:

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is obligated to investigate all complaints it receives. That review takes two directions. One part is reviewing the facts surrounding the particular complaint, and the second reviews the University’s overall processes and procedures for adherence to Title IX of the federal Higher Education Amendments of 1972. OCR’s primary goal is to ensure that a college or university is in compliance with federal law, which requires that students are not denied the ability to participate fully in educational and other opportunities due to gender.

OCR would not provide the University with a copy of the complaint for which it is currently under review, so we are not privy to its details. However, FSU is cooperating fully with OCR’s review and will continue to do so. We anticipate the review in the coming months, at which time the University expects to receive and discuss with OCR a proposed resolution agreement.

FSU’s goal is to be certain that students are supported to the greatest extent possible, that our campus and community is as safe as we can make it and that the University’s policies and activities in response to sexual assault are in full compliance with the law. In the meantime, FSU will continue its commitment to address this vital issue in order to achieve the highest level of safety for our students, employees and visitors.

More information is available from The President’s Advisory Council Against Gender Based Violence or the Title IX office
