college campuses revising sexual assault policies

Marquette University is one of many colleges addressing and revising their sexual assault policies to more closely follow the guidelines released by the United States Department of Education last April.

Marquette is implementing a rapid response team for sexual assault incidents, establishing a full-time victims’ advocate on campus, revising procedures for communicating with the Milwaukee Police Department, and offering an online course about sexual misconduct, which RAs and student leadership groups are using.

If you’re a college student, find out what your campus’s policies are on sexual assault … and consider working with your administration if changes are needed.
