Brown releases sexual assault task force’s final report

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Brown University has released the final report of the school’s Sexual Assault Task Force with recommendations for handling sexual and gender-based harassment and violence.

The report comes on the heels of a student protest in March for what some say was the school’s mishandling of a sexual assault case.

President Christina Paxson announced Tuesday that officials at the Ivy League school would review the recommendations before issuing a formal response.

The report urges the university to implement a unified policy toward sexual and gender-based harassment and violence that would apply to all members of the university community. It also calls for enforcement of the policy through a newly created Title IX office led by the Title IX program officer, a new position that will be filled in May.
