The warning signs continue
Inside Higher Ed carries a story today about a student accused of rape by a university who was acquitted in an external trial and ultimately received $245,000 in compensation for lack of due process from the U of Montana.
It also carries a story that Indiana U is revisiting past cases that were handled by a Title IX official who now is accused of sexual assault.
