Columbia University Considers Reforming Sex Discipline Code

Last fall, we reported on the appalling actions of Columbia University's administration to pass a new Sex Discipline Policy that removes several fundamental rights of the accused in rape trials. Since then, a great deal of pressure has been put on Columbia, particularly by FIRE (The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education). After failing to participate in a public discussion or Fox television interview on the policy, the directors of SAFER (an anti-rape program on campus) have called for a reform of the policy in the school's newspaper. Nothing has been done yet, but it looks like an opportunity for change. Read the latest update on the story here.Source: FIRE (The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education)
