An audit has found an Ohio State University center intended to support sexual assault survivors failed to report 57 potential felonies to law enforcement as legally required during the three years it was open.  

The school closed its Sexual Civility and Empowerment unit in June 2018 after finding workers failed to properly document and report sexual assault complaints. The university says the failure is among the reasons the center was closed and its program for supporting victims was reassigned. The university says all cases have now been reported.
