PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Brown University has announced that trained investigators will be used to help handle complaints of sexual and gender-based violence.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1JRrXxt ) the university announced Thursday that investigators will conduct interviews, gather evidence and prepare a report to the university’s Title IX council that resolves complaints.

A university task force recommended in April an investigator model for complaints and establishing an advisory council to monitor progress in setting procedures to address sexual harassment and assault.

The use of trained investigators was among the recommendations in the report for gathering evidence and conducting toxicology tests for drugs or alcohol.

Hundreds of students protested last March accusations that the university mishandled a sexual assault case in October.
