Several hundred college and university representatives will be at Dartmouth College this week for a summit on sexual assault.

The summit, which kicked-off Sunday, will give participants a chance to discuss best practices in preventing and responding to sexual violence on campus.

Conference presenters will include national experts, practitioners from institutions around the country, and federal agency representatives.

Dartmouth is among several colleges and universities being investigated by the federal education department for how it handles sexual harassment and assault complaints.

The Ivy League school recently rolled out its new student disciplinary policy for charges of sexual assault.
