Are Colleges learning from their mistakes?

“4 Ex-Football Players at Vanderbilt Arrested for Rape”
“Four former members of the Vanderbilt University football team were charged Friday with raping an unconscious woman -- also a Vanderbilt student -- in a dormitory, The Tennessean reported. The university, which had already suspended the former athletes and barred them from campus, issued a statement that said: "We are proud of the collective accomplishments of our student athletes over many years and we expect the highest standard of conduct from them. It is a privilege, not a right, to represent Vanderbilt as a student athlete, and when our standards of conduct are not met, we will hold our student athletes accountable. The charges brought today against the four former Vanderbilt football players allege conduct which is abhorrent and will never be tolerated. We will review our athletics program to be sure that it, like all other programs at the university, reflects our culture of community and respect for others and that our student athletes are held to the same high standards of conduct as all our students"”.
I do not hear sympathy for the victim in this statement, just a pat on the school’s back that they did what they were supposed to do.
Quiet No Longer, Rape Survivors Put Pressure on Colleges

Activists go public in a concerted effort to compel colleges to prevent sexual assaults.
The fact that activism is needed to prevent sexual assault in the United States is shameful!
It is about the students people!
