(MUNCIE) - A new school year is about to begin, and administrators at Ball State University have made changes to the sexual misconduct policy to help keep students safe on the Muncie campus.
University officials assembled a board of specially trained professionals to address student complaints about dating violence, stalking and sexual abuse.
School officials want students to trust that they will take all complaints seriously and hand out punishments that fit the crime.
Last year, 35 cases of sexual misconduct were reported to Ball State officials. Nine of those complaints advanced to a school judicial process. The numbers were similar for the 2012-2013 school year.
