"On April 4 the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) instructed every college and university that accepts federal funds directly or through student loans -- that is, virtually every institution of higher learning in the country --  to use the 'preponderance of the evidence' standard when adjudicating on-campus accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault rather than the 'beyond a reasonable doubt' standard used in criminal courts."
