UH reached an agreement Friday to solve sexual discrimination claims
The University of Hawaii reached an agreement Friday to solve sexual discrimination claims that they did not fully investigate from 2010 to 2016.
A review by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights found the campus did not fully comply with Title 9 federal law.
The law prohibits sexual discrimination in any educational program or activity that receives federal assistance.
The University says the Manoa campus has already made several policy changes including the creation of a stand alone Title 9 office.
"A second thing is that we have a climate survey now so basically we're surveying our students on their experiences with sexual harassment and gender based violence and we're gonna use that as a baseline and every two years, we're gonna do follow up surveys to see where we've improved," Dan Meisenzahl, UH spokesman said.
The university is also in the process of implementing a new centralized record keeping process.
