National: White House Task Force on Campus Sexual Assault Jeopardizes Student Due Process

Category: Due Process

Three months after its creation, the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault issued its first report in April 2014. Titled “Not Alone” and accompanied by a new website, NotAlone.gov, the report announced new recommended practices for colleges and universities nationwide. Troublingly, the Task Force’s recommended practices and the accompanying documents fail to answer FIRE’s grave and continuing concerns about campus civil liberties and the reliability, impartiality, and fundamental fairness of campus judicial proceedings for students accused of sexual harassment and assault.
