In the document, ASHE names areas of concern related to the issuance of the May 2020 regulations, as well as areas where the May 2020 regulations enhance opportunities for redress of sexual harassment, including sexual and domestic violence and stalking on campus. As the Biden administration revisits the May 2020 regulations, ASHE advances several recommendations, informed by research, for continued improved practice in the effort to end such harassment on all campuses in the United States.
On behalf of myself, the ASHE Board of Directors, and the entire ASHE membership, I express my gratitude to ASHE members Drs. Susan B. Marine (Merrimack College) and Sarah S. Hurtado (University of Denver) for their tremendous work on writing this statement. We are grateful for their labor and the research of our fellow ASHE members they have leveraged in developing this research-informed statement.
