Professor Michele Landis Dauber participated in a conversation on KQED’s Forum with Michael Krasny to discuss how college campuses are currently handling sexual assault complaints and what can be done to improve the situation.

State legislators this week unanimously approved an audit that will examine sexual assault policies and practices at UC Berkeley and three other state schools. The decision was prompted by nine students at UC Berkeley who filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education, alleging the school had inadequately investigated their sexual assaults. We check in on how America's college campuses handle complaints of sexual assault and rape and what can be done to improve the situation.
