Description

This investigation, part of a nationwide collaboration that was led by the Center for Public Integrity, revealed that University of Massachusetts-Amherst officials often failed to take disciplinary action against students accused or found guilty of sexual assault. Reporters found that in a four-year period, "240 sexual assaults" were reported "to campus security," and only "four students were expelled." This report also found that many women who reported the assault often dropped the accusation.
