Sexual Assaults on College Campuses
Student sexual assaults can happen both on or off campus. They occur at fraternity houses, house parties, bars, and anywhere college students are present. It includes touching inappropriately, molestation, and rape. While alcohol or drugs are often involved, that’s not always the case. Combatting sexual assaults requires a serious approach by colleges, and certainly not one where they dismiss the claims of students, try to blame the victims, or fail to take sexual assault claims serious. College campuses need to respond appropriately and comply with Title IX obligations. For sexual abuse survivors, obtaining justice when administrative systems fail is an important part of healing.
