University Of Colorado Boulder Faces Federal Investigation For Being Too Lenient On Rapists

Tara Culp-Ressler writes for Think Progress: “The University of Colorado Boulder is facing a federal investigation to determine whether it has violated Title IX, a gender equity law requiring colleges to provide equal access to education that is free from sexual assault or gender-based harassment. The investigation comes in response to one student’s complaint that CU Boulder was too slow to punish her rapist — waiting months to remove him from campus, fining him $75, and requiring him to do a five-page paper ‘reflecting on his experiences.'”
