Liberty U

Liberty University, one of the most prominent Christian colleges in the country, created a culture where members of its campus community were fearful of reporting sexual violence, according to a preliminary report from the U.S. Department of Education obtained by USA TODAY.

“Victims of sexual assault felt dissuaded by Liberty administration’s reputation for punishing sexual assault survivors rather than helping them,” federal investigators wrote in the May report

Liberty has faced increasing public pressure in recent years over policies that survivors say allow sexual violence to run unchecked. The preliminary report says that overlooked allegations of violence reached all the way to the top, including a former university president and a senior administrator.
