Abstract Collects documents from Department of Education OCR Title IX investigation. Campus Context: “Sexual assault gained attention on the campus when several students connected in 2009 with the national group Students Active for Ending Rape (SAFER) for training on 'how to demand change' on their campus. Students, particularly mobilized at Tufts, have protested the institution’s handling of sexual assault. Two alleged victims of sexual assault have spoken publicly about what they see as an inadequate response by the university. The institution has affirmed its commitment to victims of sexual assault, collected resources online, hired a sexual-misconduct-prevention specialist and a sexual-misconduct-resource specialist, formed a task force, revised policies, and trained students in bystander intervention. About 25 percent of undergraduates said they had experienced nonconsensual sexual intercourse or contact since enrolling, according to a climate survey conducted by the university in 2015."
