Dartmouth announces new sexual misconduct policy

Dartmouth College on Tuesday announced a new unified policy on sexual misconduct aimed at providing clarity and consistency for faculty, students and staff across the Ivy League campus. The new policy, effective Sept. 1, is part of the school’s broader effort launched more than a year ago to address sexual misconduct amid the #MeToo movement that has exposed abuse in politics, entertainment, academia, media and more. The announcement comes a week after the college said it would pay $14 million to former and current students to settle a federal lawsuit accusing it of ignoring years of sexual harassment and assault by former psychology department professors.
