College sexual assault issues

I read this article in the Huffington Post, and I thought: what the heck, is this for real?

“Occidental College Sexual Assault Response Subject of Federal Complaints”

“Female Occidental College students, faculty and alumni say in a federal complaint that the Los Angeles school failed to take campus sex crimes seriously by improperly reporting and adjudicating sexual assaults and covering up rapes”.

“Even when the school's investigations have found wrongdoing, punishment has been light, the complaint says. One student found responsible for raping a woman was given the punishment of writing a five-page book report, according to the complaint”.

“The college has hired Gina M. Smith and Leslie Gomez of Philadelphia-based Pepper Hamilton to conduct a review of the college's sexual violence policies. Smith recently worked with Amherst College and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, institutions that faced similar allegations of mishandling sexual misconduct complaints”.


Is it my imagination or does this issue seem to be getting worse? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/19/occidental-sexual-assault_n_3118563.html
