Process, due or not?
Sanders seems to regard internal university review processes as inadequate in his remarks which come in response to a question.
You can find the article at https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2016/01/13/sanders-criticized-comments-sex-assault-investigations. The actual statement occurs around the 30-minute mark in a YouTube video which you can find at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt3n7ugOj80.
Inside Higher Ed also has an article about a decision by a California congressional representative to disclose the edited contents of an internal, and apparently confidential, sexual harassment review of a faculty member undertaken by the U of Arizona. The article references another case at UC-Berkeley. See https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2016/01/13/politician-proposes-law-prevent-harassers-being-passed-one-institution-another.
Finally, a letter to the editor in the Daily Bruin by a former regent raises issues about due process in Title IX reviews at UCLA. See http://dailybruin.com/2016/01/13/letter-to-the-editor-the-bruin-did-not-examine-loss-of-due-process-in-new-title-ix-policy/.
