Description

Brown University, like many other colleges, has enacted a conduct code that punishes students for sexual conduct that would not be illegal in a court of law. The codes have been praised for making women feel safer on campuses. But some say the codes have gone to far, and they point to Adam Lack as a case in point. In unrefuted testimony, Mr. Lack said he had sex with a female student who initiated the sex. Nonetheless, Mr. Lack was punished by Brown, and his reputation was tarnished when the student newspaper named him as the guilty party. This story looks at whether college attempts to regulate sexual conduct deny due process to men, and are based on patronizing assumptions about women. (October 11, 1996)
