Missouri's Title IX office reportedly investigating Terrence Phillips
Missouri's Title IX office is reportedly investigating suspended basketball player Terrence Phillips, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Title IX ensures that no person in the United States experiences discrimination or violence.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch claims that it has obtained an email from the Title IX office, which was addressed to an alleged victim.
The email read, "based on additional information received by our office, the university is proceeding with an investigation against Terrence Phillips."
No alleged victims have been identified.
Missouri issued a response to the media reports.
"While we cannot confirm or deny any actions from the Office of Civil Rights and Title IX, we are aware of today's media reports regarding one of the university's students. We want to reiterate that the safety of our students, faculty and staff is paramount. The university takes alleged violations of Title IX very seriously, and any allegations are investigated thoroughly and fairly. In some cases, interim measures are taken while an investigation is pending."
