Greenbrier school among 55 in Title IX investigation

Posted:

LEWISBURG (WVVA) - Fifty-five colleges and universities nationwide are under investigation by the U.S. Department of Education over how they handle sexual violence.

One of those schools is the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine.

This investigation does not mean the school is guilty of wrongdoing, it just means the federal agency is looking into how they handle complaints of sexual abuse and harassment under Title IX regulations.

Other schools on the list, Ivy Leaguers like Harvard Law School, state schools including the University of Virginia and Ohio State University, as well as other state and small colleges like Bethany College in West Virginia.

The White House says the investigation is part of an effort to bring more attention to the issue of sexual violence.
