Connecticut to Address Campus Sexual Assaults

Posted by Paul Levin | May 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

In the fall of 2013, students from the University of Connecticut filed a Title IX complaint alleging that the University had not properly handled reports of sexual assaults on the campus, part of a growing national trend of current and former students at the university level bringing awareness to the problem of sexual assault in college.

Though there is a national campaign to take the steps necessary to ensure that college sexual assault victims get the help and support they need, Connecticut is moving on its own to help fight this problem. Governor Dannel P. Malloy recently signed into law legislation that would require colleges to provide assault victims with free counseling services and written explanations of the school's policies regarding sexual assault, and creates a resource team to review these policies at Connecticut colleges and make suggestions for improvements. Hopefully, this measure will force schools to start taking the problem of sexual assault more seriously and develop improved institutional responses.
