UNC defends sexual assault policies, prepares for federal visit

by Jennifer Brodish

Two new developments this week in the ongoing investigation of how UNC handles sexual assault complaints.

Late Friday, the university released its response to the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. The department began its inquiry after UNC students and staff filed a petition alleging the university under-reports cases of sexual assault and doesn’t do enough to help victims.

The university also revealed the federal investigators will be coming to campus in April to pore through documents and conduct interviews. They’re trying to determine if UNC’s sexual assault policies complied with federal law.
