Abbey is sexually assaulted by a peer during her first semester of college. Without a legal team or advocate behind her, Abbeys opportunity to be a curious student feels lost. She turns to her campus's Title IX reporting process for help. From the clouded motivations of school administrators to the pressures of friendship and family, THE UNIVERSITY pieces together not just what happened on the night of Abbey's assault, but how the campus community comes to understand themselves in the knowledge of this, or resists responsibility.
