Sexual Harassment on College Campuses
Ohio State University is closing the Sexual Civility and Empowerment unit. An OSU external review found the center didn’t correctly document and report some sexual assault allegations. The decision to close the three-year-old unit calls into question how the university has supported survivors of sexual assault. Today on All Sides, we look at what caused SCE’s closure and what other universities are doing to combat similar problems.
