Sexual assault gained attention on the campus when a softball player reported being sexually assaulted at a party in November 2013. Video of the incident circulated among students, prompting widespread attention to the case. Several softball players, including the apparent victim, were suspended from the team for violating team rules, The Star-Ledger reported. Prosecutors dropped their investigation of the case because they couldn't determine the identity of the apparent perpetrator. The university urged students not to share the video.
The institution has affirmed its commitment to victims of sexual assault and collected resources online.
