Reports of sexual misconduct nearly doubled from 2016 to 2017 at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. The university’s Office of Title IX released the findings this week. Campus Title IX Coordinator Ashley Blamey says improvements in the reporting process led to increases in incident reports of sexual misconduct, relationship violence, stalking and retaliation. There were 64 sexual misconduct reports in 2016 and 115 in 2017. Relationship-violence reports increased from 23 in 2016 to 33 in 2017. Stalking reports increased from 16 in 2016 to 42 in 2017. And in 2017 there were 3 retaliation reports in 2017, up from none in 2016. For the first time, the annual findings also included data on sexual misconduct by faculty and staff, with 26 reports being made in 2017.
