The university issued a 36 page response, and also said federal investigators will be on campus next month, looking into campus crime stats.
The five people who filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education have alleged that the university underreported cases of sexual assault.
They have also raised concerns about the policies in place to help students who are victims of sexual assault and sexual harassment, saying the staff lacks training. The university also says it invited the Office for Civil Rights to visit the campus last December but those plans were delayed because of the complaint.
Two of the women who've made national headlines with this story responded.
"They can have lot of pages of great policy and very pretty words, but I want to see action happen," said complainant Annie Clark.
"It isn't about policy," said complainant Andrea Pino. "it isn't about the pretty words and who they're hiring. It's about working together. We're not there yet."
UNC has denied those claims, pointing to the hiring of a new student complaint coordinator and a legal consultant.
