Feds To Probe OSU's Response To Richard Strauss Allegations

Aug 17, 2018

The U.S. Department of Education's civil rights office will investigate Ohio State University's response to allegations a late team doctor sexually abused scores of athletes and other male students in the 1980s and 1990s. 

The office will review whether Ohio State responded "promptly and equitably" to the complaints. OSU says it responded properly to claims made this year, and how staff dealt with previously raised concerns is part of an independent investigation into Richard Strauss.
