Complaints allege Title IX and Clery Act violations

Students and activists have file complaints against four colleges and universities, alleging that the schools have failed to follow federal laws involving the reporting of sexual assaults and discrimination. The Los Angeles Times says that the schools targeted in the complaints filed with the U.S. Department of Education were Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, Pa.;, Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H.; University of Southern California in Los Angeles, and University of California at Berkeley. Some of complaints cite Title IX to allege a hostile environment for women. Others charged that the colleges violate the federal Clery Act, which requires accurate reporting of campus crimes.
