Federal probe of college sexual assaults includes Catholic University

Catholic World News - May 02, 2014

The Catholic University of America is among 55 colleges under investigation by the United States Department of Education over their possibly insufficient response to campus sexual violence.

Other colleges and universities under investigation include the University of California at Berkeley, Harvard University, Princeton University, and the University of Virginia.

“We are making this list available in an effort to bring more transparency to our enforcement work and to foster better public awareness of civil rights," said Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon. “I also want to make it clear that a college or university's appearance on this list and being the subject of a Title IX investigation in no way indicates at this stage that the college or university is violating or has violated the law.”

    In all the concern about sexual violence, will anyone mention the widespread use of pornography?
