This is a story about how a group of Washington lawmakers is pressuring U.S. News & World Report to update its influential college ranking system so that it takes into account universities that have come under fire for failing to adequately handle Sexual Assault cases on campus.
One lawmaker wrote “Institutions that fail to adequately respond to sexual violence should not receive accolades from your publication.”
The basic idea is that parents and students deserve to know which campuses are safe and which have demonstrated a pattern of failing to protect and respond to sexual assaults saying that “U.S. News and World Report should not be giving top marks to institutions that don’t follow the law.”
Officials at U.S. News & World Report have indicated that they are open to the idea and are willing to meet with lawmakers to discuss it.
