Campus sexual assault panel mulls transcript notation law

Article here. Excerpt:

'Advocates from Virginia gave a legislative panel in Vermont mixed reviews of a law passed in that state requiring colleges to disclose on transcripts when students are disciplined for sexual misconduct.

Jonathan Iglesias, the public policy director for the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, said the group had concerns the practice did little to deter misbehavior and in some cases discouraged students from coming forward.

“Lots of things that we typically hear … is ‘I don’t want to ruin his life,’” Iglesias said.'
