Yale Officially Declares 'Nonconsensual Sex' Not That Big of a DealKatie J.M.

(Sometimes rapists have to spend some time thinking about respect!) According to the report, five of the six people Yale identified as nonconsensual sex-havers over the past six months either graduated without much stress or will be returning to campus in the fall. The 2011 federal Title IX investigation into Yale ended with a voluntary resolution agreement between the University and the DOE’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR); Yale didn't face any disciplinary action for creating a "hostile sexual environment," but was required to implement new grievance procedures and report to the OCR until May 31, 2014. The university has made some great structural changes, said Alexandra Brodsky ('12 LAW '16), one of the 16 students and alumni who filed a Title IX complaint, but this most recent report shows that "very little has changed."
