Sexual Misconduct Scenarios Are Released

In an effort to clarify confusion regarding the University’s disciplinary procedures on sexual misconduct, administrators this week released three hypothetical cases involving potential complaints of nonconsensual sex that would result in expulsion. Students and alumni have raised concerns that Yale’s punishments for sexual assault are not severe enough and that language about sexual misconduct used in the report is ambiguous. The scenarios are a response to criticism surrounding Yale’s fourth semi-annual report of sexual misconduct complaints.
