Statements and Media Coverage

The issue of sexual misconduct on college campuses has been in the forefront of coverage of higher education as policymakers consider options for reform efforts. Recent media coverage of a reported sexual misconduct case on the HWS campus has led to significant dialogue on approaches to address these issues. The Colleges have created a webpage to centralize communications that have been distributed to the HWS community as well as recent media coverage. We encourage members of the HWS community to share suggestions and ideas at HWSfeedback@hws.edu.
