After 12 months of reporting, the Center for Public Integrity reached some troubling conclusions about how some colleges and universities collect and report sexual assault statistics, and how sexual assault cases are handled through the campus judicial system. The Center’s Kristen Lombardi and David Donald recently spoke about this project and how you can conduct a similar investigation in a one-hour IRE webinar.

This session can help you learn how to make sense of federally mandated campus crime data (Clery Act data), how to identify and investigate cases, and how to better prepare yourself for overcoming potential reporting barriers. Lombardi and Donald also discuss the federal laws at work in these proceedings, what they require of schools, and ways you can use public records requests to your advantage. The live webinar was held on Feb. 23.
