#metoo started flooding social media following the news about film producer Harvey Weinstein. That campaign has extended beyond women in Hollywood  inspiring millions of people to speak out about their experiences with sexual harassment and assault. And it's raised questions about how best to respond to allegations in the workplace. Similar conversations were instigated in 2011 when the Obama Administration released new Title IX guidelines instructing K-12 schools, colleges and universities to expand sexual violence prevention and response efforts.  

 

Over the last few months, Wyoming Public Radio has been investigating what happens when students come forward at the University of Wyoming. In this series, we've examined inconsistencies in how UW responds, and what that means for alleged victims and perpetrators. We also looked at the potential impact of new guidelines to be issued under U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
