Campus Sexual Assault Prevention

On March 7, 2013, President Obama signed the Violence Against Women Act of 2013 (VAWA) into law. The Reauthorization of the Act includes several provisions that will affect how colleges and universities respond to and address sexual assault on campuses.

VAWA incorporates provisions of an earlier bill, known as the Campus SaVE Act, and codifies parts of an April 2011 Dear Colleague Letter issued by the Office of Civil Rights at the Department of Education.

The following resources will help colleges and universities navigate the changes mandated by the Department of Education and make necessary modifications to existing university procedures and protocols in order to stay compliant under new regulations.

Co-chaired by the Office of the Vice President and the White House Council on Women and Girls, its goals include providing higher education institutions with best practices for preventing and responding to rape and sexual assault as well as improving transparency of government enforcement activities. The White House has been committed to combating sexual assault on college campuses and has taken a mutlifaceted approach to the issue. Initiatives and campaigns, in addition to the task force, will be ongoing.
