Feds Investigate Yale for Failing to Respond to Harassment

Maybe Yale needs to begin offering introductory civil rights courses to its administrators—we know of a group of men and women who can help teach them. 16 students have filed a complaint alleging the school has systemically failed to adequately address incidents of sexual harassment and assault by other students.

And the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is investigating.

The school risks losing federal funding if found in violation of Title IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1964:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance…”

We support the women and men at Yale who are working to make their campus a fair and equitable place.
