My question is whether campus rape would end if Title IX awards began to approach the level of university endowments? Former Fresno State women’s basketball coach Stacy Johnson-Klein was awarded $19M in a Title IX dispute. But this for her dismissal. The endowment at Fresno State is $146.3M. So the Title IX award is roughly 13% of the endowment. That’s a pretty good chunk of change.
Yet, I wonder if the awards were higher on rape cases if there would be more incentive to prevent on-campus rape. Following is a table taken from a Washington Post article that represents the top 10 colleges with the most rapes per 1000 students. I’ve added a column for their endowments.
In doing a google search of “how many rape suits against colleges” I disappointedly found more news about the accused filing suits than I did the victims. I’m curious if it is indeed the case that more lawsuits are filed against colleges by the accused than the victims. If you know where I can find this information please let me know.
