Yale Responds To Sexual Misconduct Complaints

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Yale University has released hypothetical situations to illustrate how it handles sexual misconduct complaints, including several that would result in expulsion.

The hypothetical situations follow by a month criticism that Yale has not done enough to punish perpetrators of sexual assault.

Yale University President Peter Salovey asked the school to develop the list of scenarios.

Spokesman Tom Conroy said the situations were developed to respond to questions and concerns raised about the kinds of behavior Yale considers nonconsensual sex and what definition of consent Yale uses when investigating a complaint.

For example, a hypothetical situation says a person who is incapacitated lacks the ability to make or act on decisions to have sex and cannot give consent.
