Mizzou Faces Loss Of Funding Threat Over Lack Of Due Process In Sex Assault Accusations
The University of Missouri (Mizzou) just can’t seem to stay out of the news.
Earlier this week, Missouri State Sen. Bob Onder (R-St. Charles County), suggested the school might have its funding cut after concerns arose that the university does not provide adequate due process to accused students. During testimony in a Tuesday hearing, The Kansas City Star reported, Columbia, MS, attorney Chris Slusher said students accused of sexual assault regularly have their due process rights violated. In one example, he said a school gave him five days to put together a defense for an accused student. He also said schools appear to ignore exculpatory evidence.
“That’s the University of Missouri’s policy?” Onder asked after Slusher mentioned the five-day defense. Slusher replied, “Yes.”
“They might need to be asked that in appropriations hearings, too,” Onder said.
The testimony is in regard to a Title IX bill introduced in the state that would provide basic due process rights to accused students, a bill described as negatively as possible by the Star for doing so. In its article about Onder’s comment, the Star described the bill as one that “would shift the balance of power in Missouri farther toward the accused than any other state.”
