CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Laramie County Community College is under federal investigation for a sexual discrimination complaint.

The student body was informed Friday that the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights opened an investigation in February into allegations that the college had discriminated on the basis of sex in its response to a complaint of sexual misconduct.

An Office of Civil Rights representative will be on campus interviewing students this week.

College spokesman Ty Stockton says the original complaint of sexual misconduct was filed in 2015.

LCCC is one of 212 colleges currently under investigation nationwide for one or more instances of sexual violence on campus.
