Sexual assault gained attention on the campus after a few reports of incidents in September 2016.
The university had fired a professor in early 2016 after discovering videos of him engaged in sex acts with students. He sued the institution, and the lawsuit was dismissed.
The institution has affirmed its commitment to victims of sexual assault, collected resourcesonline, and taken several safety measures, such as closing gates to the campus after hours and introducing an escort system.
The professor filed a lawsuit against Alabama A&M in February after the school began termination proceedings after what the lawsuit described as years of harassment when Jones attempted to bring to light administrative issues and concerns.
