UNC Faces Federal Investigation Into Retaliation Complaint by Sexual Assault Survivor
Gambill filed an additional complaint in March after being charged with the honor code violation by the student-run honor court. The court charged that Gambill created an “intimidating” environment for her alleged abuser, an ex-boyfriend and fellow Chapel Hill student whom she has never named publicly. Gambill would have faced expulsion if she had been found guilty, but the charge was eventually dropped.
“The university is reviewing the matter and will cooperate fully with OCR’s investigation,” UNC-Chapel Hill spokeswoman Karen Moon told The Huffington Post in an email. The university has previously denied that officials retaliated against Gambill.
