Description

A lawsuit filed by a former Queens University accusing her alma mater of mishandling her reported sexual assault prompted us to dig deeper and find out how other area universities were handling sexual assault on campus. Our questions prompted four schools to amend their Clery reports,a report required by federal law outlining the number of certain types of crimes that happen on campus, to add additional reported sexual assaults. Following our first story into Queens University, the school settled its lawsuit and amended its Clery report. Ultimately, our investigation prompted four colleges and universities to amend their Clery reports to add sexual assaults. https://youtu.be/fJoKjUmt3DU
