U.S. names schools under federal sexual assault investigation
NBC News: Fifty-five colleges and universities are under a federal investigation for their handling of sexual violence and harassment complaints.
The U.S. released a list on Thursday naming the schools with open probes, which included Harvard and Princeton. The list is part of the Obama administration’s push to bring greater transparency to sexual assault cases in higher education.
The Education Department says it will continue to update the list and make it available upon request.
