Robert will also be discussing pundit Michael Barone’s recent take on the OCR letter in his latest column for The Examiner. OCR’s mandate, which continues to foster concern in the media, requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to employ the low "preponderance of the evidence" evidentiary standard ("more likely than not") when adjudicating complaints of sexual harassment and sexual violence.
