The guidance, released in the form of letters from the department's Office for Civil Rights (OCR), "evaluate[s] how the ruling extends to OCR’s enforcement of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the law prohibiting sex discrimination at federally funded institutions," according to Inside Higher Education.
