St. Norbert College in De Pere tells us it's opened an investigation with a third-party investigator after concerns were raised about how the college handled past Title IX reports.

That program relates to sexual harassment and misconduct on campus.

Students at the college have been weighting in on the current climate around campus amid the St. Norbert Abbey saying an external investigation into allegations against some Norbertine priests found no facts to support those allegations.

St. Norbert College sent a statement to Action 2 News Friday:

"St. Norbert College is committed to continuously refining our Title IX program to support survivors of sexual assault and to investigating all complaints about our Title IX policies and processes. When concerns about the handling of past Title IX reports were brought forward, the college opened an investigation with a third-party investigator. We cannot discuss the details of any Title IX investigation because doing so could compromise the investigation and the privacy of those involved."
