Yale Resolves Title IX Complaint

More than a year after 16 Yale students filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education, the Ivy League university has addressed the Title IX grievances, officials said in a letter Friday. The complaint came after an incident in which members of a fraternity chanted derogatory remarks outside a campus women’s center in 2011. Now, officials say the investigation into a hostile sexual climate at the school has ended. “I applaud the steps Yale has taken and has agreed to take to address immediate concerns and to put systems in place to help prevent future Title IX discrimination,” Russlyn Ali, an education department official said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing to work cooperatively with Yale to better ensure a safe and supportive environment for all students.”
