Case Overview

FIRE Victory closed

In 2001, George Washington University proposed a new sexual misconduct policy that lacked even basic provisions of procedural fairness. FIRE wrote to GW’s faculty senate on April 1, urging its members to condemn the proposed sexual harassment code. In a stunning and wholly appropriate blow to the university administration, the Faculty Senate voted 15-0 to condemn the code, which was sent back to be redrafted.
