- Columbia University is being pressured to say how many students have been found responsible for sexual misconduct and sexual assault, and how they were punished.
- More than 650 students have signed a petition calling on the school to disclose the information.
- The law requires colleges to disclose how many sex offenses were reported on campus, but not whether they led to investigation or punishment.
The students are trying to put pressure on Columbia by highlighting that other schools do release the information. As the article notes: "Yale University releases this type of data on its own accord, though it opened the school to criticism. Similarly, the University of Connecticut recently released a tally of how many students were accused of and punished for sexual misconduct."
