Sexual assault gained attention on the campus in 2013 when a baseball player at the college was charged with second-degree sexual assault. Another player alleged that Marcus Warner sexually assaulted him through his clothing. Police said Mr. Warner admitted to college officials that he had assaulted the teammate. Mr. Warner accepted a plea deal that replaced the sexual-assault charge with a hazing charge, and was sentenced to two years of supervised probation.
The institution has affirmed its commitment to victims of sexual assault and collected resources online.
