Here are the 55 colleges under investigation for their handling of campus sexual assault

title ixWhen the White House task force released their recommendations on combating campus rape earlier this week, they promised that the Department of Education would make the list of colleges facing Title IX investigations over their handling of sexual violence available upon request. Activists from Know Your IX noted that in the interest of true transparency, that list should be publicly accessible to all in order to better “allow the public to hold both schools and ED accountable.”

Now the Department of Education has released the names. Here are the 55 schools currently under investigation:

    I’m so glad to see that government is cracking down on this. Sexual assault is very serious and Colleges and Universities need to take proper initiative to help the student in whatever they need whether that is counseling or getting the police involved. They need to make it very clear that sexual assault will not be tolerated, and more strict rules need to be in place. Its so scary to see all these top prestigious universities under investigation.

    Just reading this list is so visually shocking and quite unnerving. I think it definitely is good that such a list has been made available to the public. Raising explicit awareness is sometimes the best. In other news, I think the recent White House PSA about college campus sexual assault is amazing.

    I’m assuming that there are a lot more colleges not on the list whose handling of sexual assault is no better than the ones on the list.

    Are there any colleges/universities that are known to be better? Or (dare I hope?) are what we feministicly inclined might consider satisfactory?
