DeVos: Too many college students have been treated unfairly under Obama-era sexual assault policy

Jackson apologized again to survivors in the meeting Thursday, according to attendees. “It’s impossible to take something like that back,” said Fatima Goss Graves of the National Women’s Law Center, who was in the meeting. But she said the department can show its commitment to protecting students by helping colleges understand how to fairly adjudicate sexual assault allegations, and by conducting a listening tour to hear from survivors around the country. “We can’t expect them to go to Washington, D.C.,” Goss Graves said. “The department has to go to them and listen deeply.”
