Students at Howard University are demanding answers from administration, after revelations of two alleged sexual assaults in 2015 resurfaced from a student’s social media posting.
In a statement, university officials said that the matter was under investigation, but that no other information could be provided about individuals who may have been involved.

While we are not able to discuss the specifics of any ongoing investigation, we are and have been actively investigating all reports that have been made to us. These cases cannot be adjudicated through social media without compromising the integrity of the investigation.
Howard University takes matters of sexual assault very seriously. As part of our commitment to a safe campus environment, we continue to refine and enhance our Title IX protocols and procedures consistent with best practices and federal regulations. This is further supported with ongoing prevention education, collaboration, training and campus engagement.
Several HBCUs, including Morehouse College, Elizabeth City State University and Morgan State University have made headlines for similar charges from students alleging improper or non-handling of rape and sexual assault claims.
