Campus Sexual Assault, Focus on UConn

Oct 29, 2013

This hour, we talk about sexual assault on college campuses, following the federal discrimination complaint against UConn. Seven students are alleging that the school failed to protect them. President Susan Herbst responded, saying “The suggestion that the University of Connecticut, as an institution, would somehow be indifferent to or dismissive of any report of sexual assault is astonishingly misguided and demonstrably untrue.”

We also talk about how students are using social media to spread the word about Title IX. And talk to a psychologist about campus sexual culture and institutional denial.
