Members of Congress Call for End to ‘Guessing Game’ About Campus Sexual Assault Failures

The U.S. Department of Education needs to do a better job disclosing which colleges it finds to be in violation of federal law handling sexual assault cases, a group of 39 members of Congress argued in a letter Wednesday.

The bipartisan group of legislators, led by Reps. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) and Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), asked the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights to disclose which colleges and universities are under investigation for alleged failures in responding to sexual misconduct, as required under the federal gender equity law Title IX.
