This 9-page document bundle includes a letter from the Education Department to the university informing it that an investigation is being opened and requesting data from the university (the data request is nearly all redacted).
University officials have said that this investigation is based on a federal Title IX complaint filed in March 2013 alleging that the institution failed to respond adequately to a report of sexual harassment.
The University of Idaho saw an increase in the number of reported forcible sex offenses last year, going from three in 2013 to a total of seven in 2014, according to the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report.
Sexual assault prevention can be a heavy topic, making it easy to forget sex has the potential to be a very positive and fun experience, said ASUI Director of Safety and Violence Prevention Sara Spritzer.
The University of Idaho is among 55 higher education institutions currently under investigation by the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights for possible violations of Title IX in handling sexual violence and harassment complaints.
