“Sexual Assault on Campus, A Frustrating Search for Justice” from the Center for Public Integrity details findings from a year-long investigation into sexual assault proceedings at universities around the country.
Beginning in February 2009, the Center fielded a team of reporters and researchers to lift the curtain on how colleges and universities respond to reports of sexual assault. Reporters surveyed crisis services programs and clinics on or near college campuses across the country and interviewed nearly 50 current and former college students who say they were raped or sexually assaulted, as well as dozens of student affairs administrators, judicial hearing officers, victim advocates, sexual assault scholars and lawyers. The reporters and researchers also investigated three federal laws that govern the way colleges and universities respond to sexual assault complaints: Title IX, the Clery Act, and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
