With mounting political pressure applied by the federal government to get tough on campus sexual assault and fearful of losing federal funding, universities are removing male students from campus in record numbers with the highest risk associated with male students of color, fraternity members and male athletes.
Buoyed by the Administration’s dramatic expansion of the scope of Title IX and the issuance of the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) Dear Colleague letters on harassment (issued October 23, 2010) and sexual violence (issued April 4, 2011), allegations of sexual misconduct are becoming commonplace on college campuses resulting in what many describe as kangaroo court processes that presume guilt and deny adequate due process for accused students.
This forum is designed to take a critical look into the impact that the Dear Colleague letters are having on college campuses, students and the problematic issues surrounding the handling of sexual misconduct allegations by institutions of higher education.
