Just a day after Columbia University took a stand against sexual violence with a decorated sheet cake, 23 students filed three federal complaints against the University and sister college Barnard, claiming the administration violated Title IX, Title II, and the Clery Act by failing to adequately address allegations of rape and sexual assault.

The complaints were filed with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights on Thursday, with the students alleging the school failed to provide students with equal access to education, respond adequately to students' reports of sexual assault, and accommodate students' disability statuses.
