The University of California, Los Angeles is being reviewed by the Department of Education for how it handles allegations of sexual misconduct under Title IX, according to a UCLA statement.

UCLA says in a statement that it was informed that they were being added to a list of 76 universities under review.

"UCLA is committed to fostering a safe and inclusive environment for our entire campus community," the university said in their statement. "We take every complaint of sexual misconduct seriously, and offer a comprehensive range of care options for survivors."

The school said in their statement that they will work with the Department of Education to review their practices.
