(2000) Sexual Assault Report to the Trustees
One of the things discussed in the Task Force on The Status of Women reports is the Title IX process and the college's response to reports of sexual assault. One concern is that students will not report their assaults or seek help due to the negative response/policy from the college. This document is the sexual assault report presented to the Board of Trustees at Middlebury in 2000. It displays the minimal number of reports, both from the college's official reporting numbers and from a survey run by the college. The disparity between the reports from the Task Forces and the report presented to the Board of Trustees displays the level of discomfort that students have reporting sexual violence to Middlebury college. It also explains, in part, why the college administration and the Board of Trustees believe sexual assault is not a large problem at Middlebury.
