Debate at BU extends to safety

Women’s hot line response at issue

A controversy that began with the arrests of two Boston University ice hockey players on sexual assault charges has mushroomed into a broader debate about women’s safety after a recent graduate called the school’s behavioral healthhot line late at night and found only what she called “a useless loop of automated menus.’’
