Sexual Assaults On College Campuses

This is a story about a writer who did a piece on CNN about institutional failures to prevent Campus Sexual Assaults.

The op-ed piece started off by saying that the U.S. Department of Education is investigating 55 universities and colleges for their failure to properly handled sexual assault cases on campus the list includes some pretty high-powered universities including the University of Michigan, Princeton, Harvard, University of Virginia and many others .

The author relates her personal experience where she had watched another friend go through the labyrinthine and largely ineffective student disciplinary process in an attempt to see her rapist held accountable.

“Like so many other survivors of campus assault, she was discouraged from reporting to the police, and her case was instead handled internally, away from real law enforcement. This is, of course, part of the problem: If there’s no real punishment for sexual violence, assailants know they can get away with it, and survivors won’t report it. And if survivors don’t report, universities can plead ignorance.”
