Alumni unite to press colleges on sexual assaults

Alumni from more than two dozen colleges and universities across the country, including several prominent local schools, have formed a national network to pressure their alma maters to step up efforts to combat campus sexual assault.

Alarmed by reports of assaults at dozens of schools, the group says it may rank college presidents based on how responsive they have been to sexual assault allegations, and then urge alumni donors to withhold gifts from schools that don’t measure up. They would urge donors to send money to a fund to fight college sexual assault.
