Dozens of colleges around the country are not investigating sexual assault cases on campus, and a significant number are giving oversight of incidents involving athletes to school athletic departments, according to a major survey released Wednesday.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), the chair of the Subcommittee on Financial and Contracting Oversight, commissioned the report, which is the first of its kind. The survey was distributed to 350 colleges and universities, and the subcommittee received 236 responses from a variety of schools across the country.
