Sexual Assault INformation
The White House released new guidelines on April 29, 2014 to help victims of violence and improve the way schools handle such cases. The White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault provides colleges with basic guidelines (links below) for dealing with sexual assault cases. The report is titled "Not Alone," created as a resource for schools and the victims of sexual assault. Its work reflects contributions from several federal agencies, including the Departments of Education, Justice, and Health and Human Services.
