Survey Finds Universities Hungry for Help in Dealing With Sexual Misconduct

University_of_Michigan-Ann_ArborA survey conducted by the University of Michigan, the Center for Effective Public Policy, and the Association for Student Conduct Administration has found that colleges and universities throughout the United States are looking for help in dealing with issues of sexual misconduct on campus.

They survey found that almost all colleges and universities had existing written policies governing sexual misconduct. But 83 percent of the responding educational institutions stated they welcomed guidelines or model practices for dealing with students found to be responsible for sexual misconduct.

Kurt Bumby, senior associate at the Center for Effective Public Policy, stated, “these findings can help inform the national conversation and guide our ongoing efforts to assist stakeholders in responding appropriately to campus sexual assault and implementing effective strategies after a student has been found responsible.”
