Sexual assault gained attention on the campus in March 2015, when the Baltimore Sun reported that two students had been expelled after an investigation into an alleged sexual assault of another student. Police reports described the alleged incident as a gang rape of a female student by four of her male peers. Two students were expelled after disciplinary proceedings, according to the Sun. The police concluded that there was insufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges in the case.
The institution has affirmed its commitment to victims of sexual assault, collected resources online, and strengthened its prevention and education programs, using an online training program known as Haven and a bystander-intervention program known as Green Dot.
Two University of Maryland, Baltimore County students have been expelled for violating the student code of conduct after an investigation into the alleged sexual assault of another student in August, school officials have confirmed.
