Following complaints, UConn adds two new positions to investigate sexual assaults

The University of Connecticut Wednesday released job announcements for two newly created jobs to investigate allegations of sexual assault and harassment.

These positions follow the filing of a complaint and lawsuit against the university by a group of students who say UConn mishandled their accusations of sexual assault last fall.

“The newly formed position of Lead Title IX Investigator/Deputy Title IX Coordinator will play a significant role in the University’s coordinated response, prevention and education initiatives,” one of the job announcements reads.
