BU task force faults hockey team’s star culture

A Boston University task force has concluded that the men’s hockey team is detached from the general campus and that a “culture of sexual entitlement” exists among some players, a sense of privilege officials say contributed to two alleged sexual assaults on campus during the past season.

That culture of entitlement stems “in part from their elevated social status on campus,” and is marked by heavy use of alcohol and casual sexual encounters with female students, according to the 11-page report, which was released Wednesday.
