BYU Launches Sexual Assault Policy Feedback Website
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Brigham Young University has launched a new website for people to provide feedback on the school's sexual assault policy.
A recently created advisory committee at the Mormon-owned school launched the website Thursday following the barrage of recent complaints over its practice of opening honor code investigations into students after they report being sexually assaulted. The website allows students to anonymously give BYU information on how best it can improve its practices related to sexual assaults.
BYU student and sexual assault survivor Madeline MacDonald says whether the website makes a difference will depend on if the school does anything with the information. The committee says it's also discussing such revisions as an amnesty clause that could give victims immunity from honor code violations committed in the lead-up to a sexual assault.
