Abstract

Four women involved in providing services for women on campuses respond to a recent essay criticizing the Education Department's guidance on responding to reports of sexual assault.

We write in response to the essay “An Open Letter to OCR," by “Anonymous.” As higher education professionals who work with survivors of sexual assault and in prevention efforts on our respective campuses, we could not disagree more with the comments and conclusions of this author.
