The following comes from a January 12 Washington Examiner article by Ashe Schow:

The University of Southern California has issued an apology for including questions about students’ sexual history in a sexual assault training course required for registration.

In a statement to the Washington Examiner, USC Senior Vice President for Administration Todd Dickey apologized for the questions and said they have been removed from the training.

The training materials had been developed by Campus Clarity, and are used by more than 500 colleges and universities across the country, according to their website. They, too, issued a response to Tuesday’s reports that students were asked how many times they had sex in the past three months and with how many people.

Campus Clarity wanted to clarify that no student was “required” to answer such questions and that schools were free to come up with their own questions as part of the training course.
