Case Western Reserve University Revises Its Sexual Misconduct Policies

CWRUlogomedium2Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland has announced the implementation of a new policy on sexual misconduct that is in effect for the coming academic year until a new permanent policy is implemented at a later date. The new policy expands definitions of sexual misconduct and updates details on the hearing and appeals process. Also, members of the campus community are required to report any incident of sexual misconduct regardless of whether they witnessed the behavior or otherwise became informed that sexual misconduct had taken place.

New students will be educated on the sexual misconduct policy at orientation programs.

Dr. Mobley is the former provost at Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, North Carolina, and previously served for 19 years on the faculty at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. Dr. Mobley is a graduate of Barnard College in New York City. She holds a master’s degree from New York University and a Ph.D. in English from Case Western Reserve University.
