SAFE Transfer Act Brands Innocent-Accused Students

No longer content to deny due process to university students facing often unsubstantiated or false accusations of sexual harassment and assault, activists now aim to destroy any hope for them to transfer to other colleges and universities…Speier’s bill arrives at a time of growing recognition that college campuses have already lost credibility in their handling Title IX violations. Under the policies that many colleges have implemented, accused students are not given copies of the incident report or other evidence against them, and not allowed to call witnesses on their behalf. On many campuses, they are denied full legal representation and the right to cross-examine witnesses. The bill would create a new “check the box” requirement specifically for the transcripts of the (mostly) male students who have become ensnared in Title IX’s ever-expanding net for campus “sex crimes.” By Anne Hendershott
