Update Regarding Title IX


The following message was sent to DU community members regarding today's announcement from the Department of Education. To read this message in Spanish, click here.

Dear Friends,

As you may have heard, the Department of Education announced this morning that it will no longer rely on its previous guidance documents related to Title IX enforcement from the 2011 Dear Colleague Letter on Sexual Violence or the 2014 Questions and Answer on Title IX and Sexual Violence.

Similar to the Department’s announcement on September 7, 2017, these developments do not obligate the University to revise any of its existing policies or procedures. Further, today’s announcement does not compromise the University of Denver’s mission to create a safe and inclusive campus environment, or its commitment to providing thorough, prompt, and equitable response to allegations of gender-based violence.

As stated in Chancellor Rebecca Chopp’s message on September 8, the University of Denver remains committed to ensuring that our practices and procedures fully support all of our students and campus community members.

Below is a list of resources that are available to members of our community:

Any questions about the University’s current policies or procedures may be directed to the University’s Title IX Coordinator, Eric Butler, at or 303-871-7016.
