Abstract Collects documents from Department of Education OCR Title IX investigation. Campus Context: “An alleged victim of sexual assault at VMI has spoken publicly about what she sees as an inadequate response by the institution. VMI has updated its policies on discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, and retaliation and collected resources online. A state task force in Virginia issued several recommendations in the spring of 2015, including to require public and private colleges to create sexual-assault-response teams, to conduct climate surveys at public colleges every two years, and to develop a state grant program to support research on gender-based-violence prevention. The state legislature also passed two laws, one requiring campus police officers to immediately notify local law-enforcement authorities after opening an investigation into felony sexual assault, and another requiring college employees to report any sexual assault disclosed to them to the campus Title IX coordinator."
