PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

ASU is responding to a federal investigation into how the college handled sexual abuse complaints.


The state's largest public university is one of 55 colleges around the country involved in the investigation.


The school announced a new task force that will examine how the university responds to reports of sexual violence.


In a letter to students and staff ASU President Michael Crow said the university is committed to combating the problem.


He said every member of the Sun Devil family should feel free from the threat of sexual violence. Students say it's a step in the right direction.


"A lot of schools are being investigated right now, so this is a great time for ASU to step up and say this is what we're doing, we're working on it, we're not tolerating this on our campus. It's a great message to send," said Kat Hofland.


The task force will review the university's current policies and procedures; they will make recommendations for any changes.
