Protecting Victims of Campus Sexual Assaults

Two initiatives to reduce college campus violence were part of the final budget package signed into law.

Going forward, higher education institutes must provide online, anonymous reporting for sexual assaults. In addition, schools must establish amnesty policies that protect students who report sexual assaults from being disciplined for other policy violations such as drug or alcohol use. 

During a bill signing ceremony in the governor’s reception room, Sen. Baker noted that Pennsylvania is at the forefront nationwide in providing crucial funding for colleges and universities to address the serious problem of assaults on campus.
