Brown University has adopted a new single policy on sexual assault. The policy was recommended by a task force last year.
That task force was formed after a student alleged that she was sexually assaulted at a Brown fraternity party, in 2014. The new policy streamlines the complaint process for people reporting alleged instances of sexual assault.
One notable change is the use of trained investigators when examining these claims. The investigators are expected to interview students, witnesses, and responders when preparing reports to resolve complaints.
