Timeline of Kenneth L. Marcus


In 2018, the U.S. Senate confirmed Marcus as Assistant Secretary of Education for Civil Rights.


While serving on the CUNY faculty, Marcus also directed an anti-Semitism program at the Institute for Jewish and Community Research. In 2011, he filed a high-profile but unsuccessfulcivil rights complaint against Barnard College, alleging that a faculty member had unlawfully “steered” a student away from taking a class from a professor who had created a hostile environment for Jewish students.

Later in 2011, Marcus founded the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law in order to “advance the civil and human rights of the Jewish people and promote justice for all.” The following year, The Jewish Forward named him to the “Forward 50” list of American Jews who had the greatest impact on the news during the prior year, based on his innovative use of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to protect Jewish college and university students. In naming Marcus one of “the new faces of Jewish power,” the Forward editorialized that “if Marcus has any say in it, we may witness a new era of Jewish advocacy. Marcus has spoken out against the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement that targets Israel and has found its voice on many college campuses. He believes that “when seen in historical perspective, the BDS campaign is the latest in a series of efforts to resist the normalization of the Jewish people. But determining whether BDS is anti-Semitic is a difficult question requiring more than historical research.” While BDS might not be inherently antisemitic, its rallies on college campuses have often resulted in Jewish students being unfairly singled out and even attacked. Accordingly, Marcus developed a list of criteria that clarifies when the BDS movement becomes antisemitic. The list includes examples such as unconscious hostility towards Jews, and the transmission of negatively coded cultural myths.


In May 2004, Marcus issued a letter admonishing recipients of federal education funds that they must fully comply with Title IX and designate a Title IX coordinator. Members of the National Coalition for Women and Girls in Education (NCGWE), had urged the Office for Civil Rights to issue such guidance to strengthen Title IX. The Office for Civil Rights had found that some institutions were not complying with the Title IX requirement that every recipient of federal funding designate and adequately train at least one Title IX coordinator. Feminist advocates praised this measure as an “important letter,” explaining that it would “help students, teachers, and parents know who to contact for advice and complaints in their own pre-schools and elementary and secondary schools as well as post secondary institutions.”

In October 2004, Marcus issued a notice of proposed regulations clarifying the legal limitations on single-sex classrooms and schools. They amended the regulations implementing Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments in order to provide greater flexibility for schools to offer single-sex public elementary and secondary education.


Later in the administration of President George W. Bush, Marcus was delegated the authority of Assistant Secretary of Education for the Office for Civil Rights (2003-2004) and served as Staff Director of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (2004-2008) At OCR, Marcus developed an initiative to address the misdiagnosis of racial and ethnic minorities in special education, as well as issuing regulations and guidance to address Title IX grievance procedures, religious minorities, racially segregated school activities, single-sex classrooms, and patriotic youth organizations.


Early in his career, Marcus served as lead counsel for the so-called “Berkeley Three,” a group of neighborhood activists in Berkeley, California, who sued the federal officials of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for investigating why they criticized a housing project in their neighborhood in 1993. In collaboration with the Center for Individual Rights, Marcus prevailed in this First Amendment lawsuit before a federal district court in 1998. This victory was affirmed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in 2000. In a unanimous opinion, the Ninth Circuit held that the investigating officials “could not have reasonably believed their actions to be consistent with the First Amendment.” Civil libertarians hailed the decision as “good news for friends of free speech” and a “decisive rebuke” to HUD. National publicity regarding this case forced HUD to change its policy on fair housing investigations.
