Sketch portrait of African female

I’ve never heard about them being solved

I've heard about so many sexual assaults in the university, but I’ve never really heard about them being solved or someone reporting it- I’ve just heard about the case, but never the case being solved.

Recommendations

  • Engage external investigators to adjudicate all sexual assault cases. Describe the process by which investigators are selected within the policy. Communicate this process to complainants and respondents.

  • Offer fictionalized but representative examples of how disclosures and reports to the university have been handled.
