The Office for Civil Rights said it had opened four new cases, one each at: Indiana University-Purdue University-Fort Wayne, its first in this era of enforcement; Duke University, its third; Cornell University, its fourth; and Princeton University, its fifth. One investigation at Duke was resolved in 2013, and three at Princeton have also been resolved (two in 2012, one in 2014). All other investigations are active.
The University of South Florida fired the director of its communications school, Samuel Bradley, for hiding an investigation into inappropriate sexual relationships with students in his previous job at Texas Tech University. Meanwhile, a faculty member in USF’s English department, Marc Santos, was found to have violated a policy regarding sexual relationships with students (but had already been hired by the University of Northern Colorado).
The Office for Civil Rights said it had resolved an investigation at Minot State University after finding that the university's policies were in violation of Title IX.
