This story about Campus Sexual Assaults claims it happens on every college campus, and it is notoriously under-reported.
Now, a New York senator and governor are pushing similar initiatives to address the issue, with the state education system also taking steps.
A strengthened version of the Campus Accountability and Safety Act is earning bipartisan support, and Gillibrand called it “a new path forward to protect students by flipping the incentives and holding schools accountable.”
The proposed federal legislation would:
- Establish campus resources and support services for student survivors.
- Ensure that college staff meet minimum training standards to address sexual assault.
- Increase transparency so students, parents and the public have an accurate picture of the problem and how it is being addressed.
- Require a uniform student disciplinary process.
It addresses the big needs: uniform policies across all college campuses, better protocols for reporting sexual assaults, increased knowledge about rights and defined training requirements.
