The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga hosted a student meeting Tuesday to garner input on a new sexual misconduct policy. 

The school instituted an interim policy that went into effect Jan. 5 and more strictly codified standards of consent, University Spokesman Chuck Cantrell said. Cantrell said all UT campuses are revising their codes of conduct as it relates to sexual misconduct. 

The meeting Tuesday sought student input and drew heated comments from some students who condemned the administration's handling of sexual misconduct cases. 

UTC is currently under investigation by the Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights for violations of Title IX. A female student filed a complaint against the school last semester, alleging the school mishandled her sexual assault case and violated her rights.
