A new bipartisan bill introduced in the Senate aims to simplify the process for students to file civil rights complaints related to antisemitism and Islamophobia on college campuses. The bill, known as the Protecting Students on Campus Act, requires colleges and universities to report the number of complaints they receive and the actions taken to address them. It also mandates that institutions with high ratios of discrimination complaints undergo audits by the Education Department's inspector general. Additionally, the bill requires colleges and universities to provide information on how to file complaints on their websites and calls for regular briefings to Congress on discrimination complaints. The Education Department has already launched numerous investigations into colleges since the recent rise in antisemitism and Islamophobia. The proposed legislation aims to prevent the closure or dismissal of complaints that have been resolved by other government agencies. The bill seeks to hold colleges and universities accountable for protecting students from discrimination. Congress has been increasing its oversight of universities in recent months, with investigations into Harvard University and threats to reassess the tax-exempt status of several universities over concerns about their handling of antisemitism.
