NCAA To Schools: Stay Out Of Sexual-Assault Investigations
The NCAA's exec committee last week voted unanimously "to tell member schools they must not 'manage, direct, control or interfere' with sexual-assault investigations involving college students." There are "no penalties involved if the school does so." The move comes weeks after U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), during a congressional hearing about college sports, announced that a survey conducted by her office "found that 30% of schools allow their athletic departments to handle sexual-misconduct allegations against athletes" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 8/16).
