The report, which was likely funneled through the university's Title IX office, notes the accuser said she was raped at a party at the Fiji house in December 2015. The investigation is listed as inactive. UNL police field belated report of sexual assault at Fiji house stemming from 2015

Police fielded the report on Wednesday, nearly six years after the alleged rape occurred and a week after UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green announced sweeping changes to the university's sexual assault education, support and prevention efforts.

The changes, announced at a student government meeting Sep. 1, come after demonstrators gathered outside of the Fiji house on four consecutive nights after a 17-year-old UNL student told police she was raped by a 19-year-old member of the fraternity. An investigation into that allegation is ongoing.
