Huffington Post quotes Sokolow on University of Kansas sanction

Brett Sokolow, president and CEO of the National Center for Higher Education Risk Management, who frequently counsels schools on how to handle incidents of sexual assault, said that applying such a sanction in this case did not appear appropriate.

The KU case shows why leaving these matters in the hands of student conduct administrators who lack training in the complexities of sexual violence — rather than in the hands of a Title IX coordinator — is a bad idea, Sokolow said.

“They want desperately to believe they can use a reflection paper to teach him to stop next time,” Sokolow said. “They don’t think about the next victim, if he does not stop.”
