ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The University of New Mexico’s sexual misconduct prevention training has garnered mixed reviews from students, but a majority says it has had some benefit.

The Albuquerque Journal reports the university’s status report to the U.S. Department of Justice shows more than 75 percent of students say they better understood sexual assault and Title IX after taking “The Grey Area” course.

A similar number of students reported they had more confidence in recognizing sexual behavior that violates university policy and felt more confident in reporting that behavior.

According to the report, about 60 percent of students say the course topics were relevant.

The university’s report represents opinions from more than 5,000 students who responded to a questionnaire after the training, which was required under an agreement with the Justice Department.
