US, Tufts University at odds on handling sexual assaults

The US Department of Education found Monday that Tufts University is not complying with federal rules governing how colleges address sexual assault and said the university needs to do more “to ensure the safety of more than 10,000 students” at the school.

The action, stemming from a 2010 complaint from a woman about Tufts’ handling of her sexual assault allegations, could result in the university losing its federal funding if it does not reach an agreement with the education department’s Office for Civil Rights.
