Our July 11 program explored the attempted ouster of the president of the University of Texas at Austin and the results of a U.S. senator's survey of campus handling of sexual assaults. In a discussion with Inside Higher Ed's Scott Jaschik and This Week moderator Casey Green, the Association of American Universities' Hunter Rawlings III discussed the clash involving Bill Powers, president of UT-Austin, Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa and the board of the UT system (with Governor Rick Perry in the wings). And in our other segment, Laura Dunn of SurvJustice and Kevin Kruger of NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education examined Senator Claire McCaskill's study of how colleges prevent and respond to sexual assault.
