E-lert: Important New Dept. of Education Case Summary
About one month ago, the Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) made a landmark finding: for the first time ever, OCR concluded that a college had violated the Title IX rights of a student accused of sexual assault.
SAVE has compiled a summary of the government’s settlement and findings with the school, Wesley College. This six-page summary is available here: http://www.saveservices.org/wp-content/uploads/Wesley-College-2016-Determination-and-Agreement-Summary.pdf
SAVE hopes that you will find it useful for your work on campus sexual assault and due process issues.
This crucial case lays the groundwork that procedural protections are needed for each student in a hearing. SAVE is working to ensure this happens!
