Department of Education Promises New Transparency on Title IX Exemptions

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The U.S. Department of Education announced this week that it would create a searchable database of every college or university that claims religious exemption from Title IX federal civil rights protections.

In 2015, 43 higher education institutions applied for a record number of waivers exempting them from policies meant to safeguard against sex and gender discrimination at public universities, claiming that the 1972 law violates their religious freedom. The Department of Education approved 22 of them, with the rest pending.
