There appears to be no rule or even a policy against Stanford University employees using students for sex. That may or may not contribute to rape. The article also reminds us that Stanford has its own police department - an unsupervised division of the county sheriff's office. Next, Stanford will control rape kits on campus? Maybe some further explanation would be useful. Universities cover up sexual assault for reasons including reputation, appeal and profit. .
