California Campuses to Face Sexual Assault Audit

08/23/2013

Inside Higher Ed.  August 23, 2013.  After hearing testimony from University of California students who say their institutions ignored or mishandled their complaints of sexual assault, state lawmakers on Wednesday authorized an audit with "priority status" to examine how UC and California State University campuses address sexual assault. The audit will include the University of California at Berkeley, as well as another UC campus and two in the CSU system, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. In May, students filed a federal complaint with the U.S. Department of Education alleging that Berkeley inadequately investigated and reported sexual assault.
