Betsy DevosThe Department of Education on Friday announced new proposed rules that would place limits on college investigations into sexual harassment and assault allegations made by students.

The new plan would only allow universities to investigate claims that occurred on campus or other property owned by the school, not off-campus locations. It would also require the accuser to report the incident to a specific officials within the university.

"We can, and must, condemn sexual violence and punish those who perpetrate it while ensuring a fair grievance process," Education Secretary Betsy DeVos wrote in a statement issued Friday. "Those are not mutually exclusive ideas. They are the very essence of how Americans understand justice to function.”
