Dear campus and community members,

The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, in conjunction with the Title IX Office, is in the process of updating the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities (Code) in order to adhere to the Title IX Regulations of 2020. In May of 2020, the Department of Education released new Title IX Regulations, the first since the implementation of Title IX in 1972. These regulations provided institutions prescribed processes, definitions and roles that must be adopted. Evergreen quickly worked to implement these regulations by the deadline of August 14, 2020, by the Emergency Rulemaking process. We are now working to make the Title IX Regulations permanent in our Code; we are asking for community participation in the process.

You are invited to attend a Public Hearing on the Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities on Monday, March 15, 2021, starting at 3:00pm. For the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Governor’s ongoing restrictions, public rule-making hearings will be conducted via video and phone conference through Zoom.

The Public Hearing will offer a presentation on the Title IX Regulations and provide time for individuals to make comments or ask questions related to the proposed Code changes. No registration is required to participate. We ask that participants keep their comments to 90 seconds (about 1 and a half minutes) to allow all parties to participate if they would like. The Zoom link to the Public Hearing is:

If you are not able to attend the Public Hearing and want to submit comments, please email by Wednesday, March 17th at 5:00pm. All comments will be reviewed and considered.

Attached to this email, please find the proposed Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities for comments.

If you have any questions or need additional information about the Public Hearing or the proposed Code edits, please reach out to either Connie Gardner, Title IX Coordinator ( or Lori Johnson, Director for Student Rights and Responsibilities (
