Sexual assault gained attention on the campus when the Education Department added the college to a list of institutions facing a federal inquiry for potential Title IX violations over their handling of sexual-violence cases.
A student who filed a federal complaint against the institution for allegedly mishandling a reported sexual assault has spoken publicly about her experience. The student, who spoke anonymously and is now a graduate, told The Register-Mail that the college found the accused student responsible for the assault but allowed him to return to campus after he served a brief suspension. The college would not comment to the newspaper on the specifics of that case.
The institution has affirmed its commitment to victims of sexual assault and collected resources online.
