From the Frontlines: Executive Director Update 

Brett A. Sokolow, ATIXA Executive Director, provides an update on the association and the field in a new edition of the weekly column, From the Frontlines.
Has anyone considered why so many of the students accused of sexual misconduct on our campuses have fathers (or parents) who are attorneys, especially criminal defense attorneys? This can't be a coincidence, right? There is probably a fascinating study of nature v. nurture somewhere in this factoid.
