HANOVER, N.H. — Dartmouth College is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Education over its response to sexual harassment allegations on campus.

Steven Spector, the department’s assistant press secretary, said the department’s Office of Civil Rights initiated a compliance review of Dartmouth for sexual harassment grievance procedures and potential violations of Title IX. That law forbids gender discrimination among schools that receive federal aid.

Spector told the Valley News the government has recently looked into a series of similar cases at other colleges.

Dartmouth spokesman Justin Anderson said the college is cooperating with the investigation. He said Dartmouth has focused on prevention and education and worked to strengthen its policies.
