In case you hadn’t heard, more than 70 universities across the country are currently being investigated by the Department of Education for mishandling sexual-assault cases on their campuses. Although Title IX requires that universities keep their student bodies safe from sexual violence, universities around the country have been accused of everything from keeping known serial rapists on campus and sending sexual-assault survivors to psychiatric wards to retaliating against survivors who speak out about their mistreatment. And Baltimore’s universities apparently (allegedly) didn’t want to be left behind on the trend—both Morgan State and Johns Hopkins University are under investigation for Title IX violations. Here’s hoping this will be a wakeup call for the schools to get their shit together and start protecting students properly.
