Former UNC dean of students says she was forced to underreport sexual assault cases
The complaint alleges UNC officials told Manning the number of sexual assault cases she compiled was "too high"
BY KATIE MCDONOUGH
According to a complaint filed to the U.S. Department of Education, the University of North Carolina pressured former dean of students Melinda Manning to underreport sexual assault cases.
Manning, three students and one former student filed the complaint earlier this week, alleging that the University violated the Clery Act, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, among other federal laws.
The complaint, obtained by the Daily Tar Heel, scrutinizes UNC’s handling of sexual assault cases and serves as a large-scale indictment of the actions of high-level UNC administrators.
As reported by the Daily Tar Heel:
The complaint alleges Manning was told by the University Counsel’s office that the number of sexual assault cases she compiled for 2010 was “too high” before the total was decreased by three cases without her knowledge; that she was made the victim of a hostile work environment in the dean of students office.

They can't let their reputation get tarnished on something like this. It's better to sweep it under the rug. (sarcasm)
