Washburn Says Campus Is Safe

KSAL StaffJuly 10, 2014

The president of Washburn University says the school is “very safe” and sexual assault is rare on the Topeka campus.

President Jerry Farley says a federal investigation into the school’s handling of sexual violence stems from an alleged sexual assault involving two students. He says such cases are rare at Washburn.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights recently added Washburn to its list of post-secondary institutions with current Title IX sexual violence investigations.

The victim of the alleged assault filed a complaint against Washburn in April, and the Office for Civil Rights is investigating.

The university has a month to provide the federal agency with documents concerning Washburn’s procedures and how the university responded to the reported assault.
