The University of Colorado at Boulder has backed out of participating in a nationwide sexual-assault survey administered by the Association of American Universities, The Daily Camera reports. University officials said that the questions were too restrictive and that the Boulder campus would administer its own, more-nuanced survey. But it’s still on the hook for the association’s $87,500 fee.
The association got a less-than-enthusiastic response from its member universities when it introduced the survey last fall. Less than half of its members opted to participate, with many saying they were planning their own surveys instead. Boulder’s withdrawal brings the overall tally of participating universities to 27.Return to Top
