As reported by two teams of journalism students at Southern Methodist University and Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism at the University of North Texas, many colleges were failing to inform students about violent crimes-such as rape-in and around their campuses. Also, many campuses were misinterpreting or ignoring the Clery Act, which requires disclosure of campus-related crimes. Many rapes were ignored or were logged as simple 'assaults'. As a result, U.S. Department of Education launched an investigation into the story's findings.
