Kenyon, Facing Criticism, Will Review Sex Assault Policies

April 29, 2016

Sean Decatur, president of Kenyon College, has announced that the college will commission an independent review of the way it handles sex assault allegations, and has said that the inquiry may lead to difficult questions for the college. He noted that he has regularly heard from victims of sex assaults, and those accused, with both groups saying that the system does not work fairly. The Kenyon announcement follows a widely read essay by a Kenyon alumnus detailing the way he says the college mishandled the sexual assault of his sister, a Kenyon student, failing to find any wrongdoing by the man accused of assaulting her.
