Is Your School One Of The 55 Under Federal Investigation For Mishandling Sexual Assault?

The U.S. Department of Education released a list of 55 schools under federal investigation for mishandling sexual assaults on campus. Catherine E. Lhamon, the department’s assistant secretary for civil rights, said,”We are making this list available in an effort to bring more transparency to our enforcement work and to foster better public awareness of civil rights.”

I think this level of transparency is important because the #1 reason why colleges mishandle rape, other than that they don’t take it seriously, is that they don’t want the bad publicity. Colleges handle rape cases internally and they do it poorly to hide the fact that rapists go to their school. The U.S. Department of Education is making their worst nightmares come true. It’s sending the messages to universities that not protecting their students from sexual harassment is a far worse offense and public relations nightmare than the public knowing that a sexual assault occurred.

See if your school is on the list of universities who mishandled sexual assaults.
