The U.S. Department of Education has opened a formal investigation into the Johns Hopkins University's response to an alleged rape at a fraternity house, the university disclosed Tuesday. A group of students filed a complaint with the department's Office of Civil Rights earlier this year, arguing that the university had violated the Clery Act and Title IX, federal laws that dictate how crimes like sexual assault should be handled by universities and reported to the public. Officials said they were notified of the investigation on Friday.

Responding to complaints that universities have fallen short in policing sexual assaults on their campuses, the White House announced a series of measures Tuesday intended to pressure college officials to step up efforts.

The government is also creating a website, NotAlone.gov, that it says will help victims file federal complaints and access data on federal investigations.

Nita Strickland and Sidney Garland, best friends since the sixth grade, have shared a lot - their hopes and daily frustrations, an interest in some of the same music and TV shows. Now in college, even though they are of opposite sexes, the students share a tiny dorm room on Towson University's campus. What would have been considered taboo just a few decades ago has become more common. Coed dormitories, which shocked some when introduced in the 1970s, have given way to coed rooms.

Enrollment at the University System of Maryland is expected to decline in the coming academic year and the following year, the first projected drop since the 1990s. More than 153,000 graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in fall 2013 at the state's public college system, but officials don't expect to surpass that number again until 2016. USM officials believe the colleges are still on track for longer-term growth, however. Much of the decline expected this coming fall is driven by a 6.5 percent expected drop at the University of Maryland, University College, which offers online and continuing education courses.

As I listened to the conversation in the Maryland Senate regarding the bill to ban extremely high alcohol content beverages (SB-75), one argument said a ban would fail, and we should instead focus on educating our students. Well, incoming freshmen at Frostburg State University don't wait long before their education on the dangers of high-risk drinking begins. I start talking about it at the very first summer orientation session, and we keep telling parents and students about high-risk drinking and its consequences throughout.

When the regents of the University System of Maryland meet on Friday, they need to add to their agenda a discussion of Derek Sheely, the Frostburg State University student who died two years ago of head trauma sustained in football practice. Last month, Mr. Sheely's family filed a complaint against two Frostburg football coaches alleging that their son's death resulted from the coaches' conducting dangerous helmet-to-helmet "Oklahoma-style" tackling drills over three days. These drills, they allege, were so violent that they caused Mr. Sheely to sustain a bleeding gash on his forehead on the first day. The Sheelys allege that the football coaches encouraged their son to continue the drills without being evaluated for a concussion by the team's athletic trainer.

Frostburg State University may have violated state ethics laws and university system rules by awarding a $2 million construction contract to a developer connected to a school advisory board member, according to the Office of Legislative Audits.
