Sexual Assault at Universities Nationwide
Two girls at Kansas State are suing the university for refusing to investigate their rape cases because the girls were raped off campus at a fraternity house. Earlier this year, Baylor was under scrutiny for turning away a girl who was raped, refusing to help her because the rape also occurred off campus. All schools are required by law to investigate allegations of sexual violence and provide support to the victims, whether they are on campus or not. The US Department of Education is currently investigating 161 institutions regarding their handling of sexual violence cases, and the list keeps getting longer.
