Description

An investigation by the Columbus Dispatch and Student Press Law Center exposed that many universities across the nation are under-reporting violent crimes that occur on campus, using secret judicial review boards to often hand out soft punishments for serious crimes and are violating the rights of both the victims and accused in a system that ignores due process. The deception begins with the name: Campus Security. Most campuses are anything but secure. And worse, administrators have cloaked their campus crime rates and poor response to them in secrecy — failing to take some complaints seriously, shunting what should be criminal cases into closed-door campus judicial hearings handled by untrained faculty and students, and refusing public records about the cases or stalling when asked for them.
