One of these bills is The Campus Safety and Accountability Act, which would allow the Office of Civil Rights to issue a fine worth up to 1 percent of the school’s budget if the institution is not in compliance with regulations, says Saundra Schuster, co-founder and advisory board member of ATIXA, the Association of Title IX Administrators.

“I don’t think it’s necessarily reasonable because I believe schools are working hard to do the right thing, [but] I do think it will get the attention of those in the institution that have fiscal responsibility,” Schuster says.

If passed, these bills have larger implications for institutions than loss of financial support. “I believe that their insurance carriers would likely have concerns about monetary losses, certainly their credit rating may be impacted, and of course the usual issues related to reputation, media coverage and admissions numbers,” says Schuster.
