(SOUTH BEND) - The University of Notre Dame is among more than 165 colleges under federal investigation for possible Title IX violations related to sexual violence on campus.

As of February 24, the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights was investigating 208 cases for issues of sexual violence at 167 colleges and universities.

The federal agency says the investigation of Notre Dame was opened February 19. It's unclear whether a formal complaint of a compliance review prompted the investigation.

Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown tells the South Bend Tribune that the accused student hasn't been enrolled at the school since last spring. The university hasn't released any other details about the investigation.

Indiana University in Bloomington, Valparaiso University and Vincennes University also are under investigation for possible Title IX violations.
