DSU to make changes to sexual assault investigation process

DOVER, Del. — Delaware State University has agreed to make changes to its sexual assault investigation process following a student protest.

A sophomore at the university held a march on campus last week after she spoke about her sexual assault and how it was handled by the school.

After the march, the university’s Student Government Association Integrity Administration met with DSU President Tony Allen and other administrators to call for immediate change in procedures.

The Delaware State News reports that the university committed to enhanced funding to the Sexual Assault Response advocate program and also plans to work with the student government association to develop a comprehensive prevention plan.
