These 6 universities kept Title IX sexual misconduct data secret

11 mins read



USA TODAY asked more than 100 of the nation’s top public universities for data showing how they handled sexual misconduct complaints under the landmark federal law known as Title IX.

Six of those schools refused to provide it.

They shared no information about the number of sexual misconduct complaints they investigated, how many students they found responsible or what types of sanctions they issued to those students.

They opted to leave the public in the dark about their track record of complying with a key mandate under Title IX, which turned 50 years old this summer. The law is supposed to ensure students’ right to an education free from sexual harassment and gendered violence. It put the onus on colleges to build robust systems for investigating allegations, protecting complainants and disciplining perpetrators.
