Yale University Under Investigation for 'Hostile Sexual Environment'


According to Zeavin, these are just a few of the many examples that she says makes her and other women feel that they have tried everything short of federal intervention to try and improve campus life.

"At this moment we have exhausted all of our internal Yale resources to try and combat this," she said. "We feel like we must change the current Yale environment to one that is less hostile to women."

"We love our university and we want to see that change happen," she added. "We have simply asked the Office of Civil Rights to assist us in mediating that change."

Zeavin said that the next step in the investigation is for the agency to conduct a "climate check," during which it will send representatives to the campus to speak with the students and administration.

If Yale University is to be found in violation of Title IX, it could be denied federal funding.
