WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis, the Ranking Member of the Higher Education Subcommittee, released the following statement on the decision by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to reverse President Obama’s Title IX policy to protect survivors of sexual assault. Davis recently introduced the SOS Campus Act, to help survivors and prevent campus sexual assault.

“This decision undermines efforts to protect the rights and safety of our students. The Title IX guidance issued by the Obama Administration has been key to helping colleges and universities address and remedy campus sexual assault, as well as ensure that survivors are treated with dignity and respect. As ranking member of the Higher Education Subcommittee, I will make it a priority to ensure a safe learning environment for all students.”
