UNC-Chapel Hill reviewing handling of sex cases

 
Posted Thursday, May 2nd 2013 @ 10am

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) _ The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill says it is creating a task force of students, faculty and staff to review the school's policies for handling sexual assault cases.
 
The school announced the plan Wednesday.
 
The university's handling of sexual assault is under federal investigation after several women filed a complaint earlier this year with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.
 
There is a second federal investigation on whether the school properly released sex assault statistics under the federal campus crime reporting law.
 
The 21-member task force this month will begin reviewing the university's handling of student-on-student complaints of harassment, sexual misconduct or discrimination. The panel will work through the summer to come up with recommendations.
