Yale Faces Fine for Underreporting Sexual Assaults on Campus

Yale University is facing a $165,000 fine from the U.S. Education Department for underreporting the number of sexual assaults on campus.

Yale committed “numerous” violations of U.S. regulations, including failing to report four forcible sex offenses on its campus in New Haven, Connecticut, in 2001 and 2002, according to a letter the agency sent university President Richard Levin on April 19. Yale has appealed and requested that the fine be reduced, Jane Glickman, an Education Department spokeswoman, said in an e-mail.
