MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Federal officials say they have reached agreements with the University of Montana after a yearlong investigation in to mishandled sexual assault reports on campus.
Officials from the U.S. Justice and Education departments held a news conference Thursday in Missoula to announce the results of the probe.
They say the university agreed to take steps to revise its policy and procedures and promise to adequately respond to allegations of assault.
The investigation began after 11 assaults involving university students were reported over an 18-month period.
Federal attorneys said they were looking at sexual assaults reported across Missoula over three years.
Investigators were examining whether gender discrimination affected the response by the university and law enforcement.
