Summit On Sexual Assault
from Inside Higher Ed
A leading forensic consultant urged representatives from more than 60 colleges and universities gathered here Monday to acknowledge that they've made mistakes in handling campus sexual assaults and to apologize publicly to student survivors. "We must apologize for causing that harm," David Lisak, the consultant and clinical psychologist, said. "And that apology must mean something." Lisak is one of the many speakers discussing sexual assault this week at a summit hosted and organized by Dartmouth College — an institution that is no stranger to criticism about how it has addressed sexual violence. The college is one of 67 institutions under investigation by the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights for possible Title IX violations related to sexual assaults.
