Shame on Hobart & William Smith Colleges

I am a Hobart College alum (Class of '77) and am totally outraged by this report at The New York Times on of sexual assault and subsequent investigative disaster at the Colleges. Even before seeing it I'd received this damage-control missive from the President of the Colleges stating (in part): "In response to inquiries, HWS officials met with the Times reporter for two lengthy interviews and answered numerous questions via e-mail and phone, all in an effort to fully explain our approach and philosophy regarding sexual assault cases. Regrettably, these responses were either ignored or downplayed in the article." Note that this statement says nothing about the precipitating assault or the actual performance of either the College investigators or Geneva PD. This is shameful.
