A politically diverse group in Congress has formed to root out sexual abuse by employees at universities. This bipartisan approach is needed when it comes to other Title IX policies, too.

Led by Michigan U.S. Reps. Elissa Slotkin, a Democrat, and Republicans Fred Upton and Lisa McClain, and Democratic Sens. Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow, the legislation would require universities to submit certification each year to the U.S. Department of Education that asserts the institution’s president and at least one member of the governing board have reviewed sexual abuse investigations reported to the Title IX coordinator involving a school employee.
