BOSTON — Colleges across the country are grappling with how to handle an influx of sexual misconduct cases from years or decades past, which they largely attribute to the #MeToo movement. With limited staffing and little hope of finding conclusive evidence, some schools question whether to investigate at all. Some instead focus on providing support to victims and explaining changes they’ve made to protect students now. Those that do investigate face a tangle of questions about which generation of policies should apply, and whether they can legally share complaints with other schools where accused faculty now work.
