Title: Discrimination Based on Shared Ancestry or Ethnicity in Response to EO 13899 on Combating Anti-Semitism and EO 13985 on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities 

The Department plans to issue a proposed rule to amend its regulations implementing Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. 2000d et seq., in response to Executive Orders (EO) 13899 on Combating Anti-Semitism and 13985 on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. The proposed regulations would implement the Executive Orders to address enforcement of Title VI by the Department’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in cases involving harassment and other discrimination based on shared ancestry or ethnic characteristics.  In this area, OCR has received complaints of harassment and assaults directed at Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and other students based on their shared ancestry or ethnicity.
