Response to Dean Bylander's Article on Sexual Assault

Letter to the Editor
Date: 
October 8, 2000

An anonymous letter to the Editor in response to Dean Bylander's article on sexual assault and the reasons why victims do not come forward addresses Dickinson's judicial system. He/she says: "It fails to provide victims with security or closure, and more often than not, it allows the abuser to come away with little more than a slap on the wrist." They demand to know "what the college is hiding." This student feels that sexual violence was not being dealt with openly and more awareness was necessary on campus.
