"We're going to check in, right now, with some of our nation's hallowed institutions of higher learning," Jon Stewart said on The Daily Show last night. Which led to a dissection of the woefully inadequate ways schools handle sexual assault.
At James Madison University, a former student claims the school was too lenient on three male students who were found responsible for sexually assaulting her on a spring break trip.
"This case is horrifying, but at least the woman has video ... at least this time the school cannot sweep this under the rug. So what's the punishment?"
The three students, found responsible of assault and harassment by the school, were expelled upon graduation.
"Wait a minute, 'expelled upon graduation?' Isn't that ... graduation?" Stewart asked. "No alumni tailgating, or reunions, or bringing your kids back to show them where you abused girls?"
And JMU joins 55 schools under investigation by the federal government for mishandling sexual assault and rape cases.
"What the fuck? Are colleges trying to incentivize sexual assault?" Stewart said. "Clearly universities are not making their campuses safe for women."
So Daily Show correspondents Jessica Williams and Jordan Klepper came on for some Campus Safety Dos and Don'ts.
