WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday will order a review of changes the previous administration made to on rules on how colleges should handle sexual assault allegations and formally establish a White House Gender Policy Council, officials said.

A Biden executive order he will sign later on Monday will direct the U.S. Education Department to review all its existing regulations, orders, guidance, and "policies for consistency with the administrationís policy to guarantee education free from sexual violence," according to a White House fact sheet provided Sunday night.

In 2017, the Trump administration reversed Obama-era guidelines that had spelled out measures schools should follow to try to prevent sexual assaults on campuses. Trump's Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, argued the Obama guidelines resulted in too many students being falsely charged and the accused being treated unfairly.

1. I am so grateful for how quickly the Biden Administration is moving to reverse trump's damaging

appointments and policies. There is nothing better than having an experienced and smart President who can call on other experienced and smart people to make the changes the country needs.
