Oakland Tribune: UC Berkeley Sexual Assault Policies Draw U.S. Agency Probe


UC Berkeley's response to campus sexual assault is the subject of a federal investigation, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Education confirmed Friday.

The probe began weeks after dozens of Berkeley students and alumni filed a complaint with the federal Office for Civil Rights, alleging the school mishandled campus disciplinary cases involving sexual violence.

Six of the women involved spoke publicly in February about the attacks on them and their dealings with the campus disciplinary system, which many students turn to for justice in addition to -- or instead of -- the police.

They said they were kept in the dark about the disciplinary proceedings and that the campus failed to adequately punish the accused.

update: Daily Cal now has coverage and points to the most that might happen: If investigators from the Office for Civil Rights determine that UC Berkeley is not in compliance with Title IX, they can issue a resolution agreement asking the campus to voluntarily take actions to be in compliance.

wow-- that sounds -- so weak...
