This effort began with a series of workshops in 20 that culminated in the development and coordination of a federal interagency workgroup. NIJ has also funded research examining the nature, characteristics and extent of dating violence; risk and protective factors; long-term and short-term outcomes; and systematic evaluations of teen dating violence prevention and intervention programs, policies and legislation.The objective of this regulation is to ensure compliance with Board Policy 2.1001 – Preventing and Responding to Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking, the Campus Sa VE Act and the VAWA. The Sa VE Act seeks to address the violence women face on college campuses and updates the Jeanne Clery Act (Clery Act). New students and employees will receive information about sexual misconduct during orientation and during their first full semester at the College. “Sexual Assault” means any nonconsensual sexual act proscribed by Federal, tribal, or State law, including when the victim lacks capacity to consent.We work with the entire family to really understand the issues, create an action-based plan and begin a path to successful and lasting recovery.Our students gain a deeper understanding of themselves while they receive the tools to move forward in their education and in life.Highlights include our feature article, “Sexual Assault: A Legal Perspective,” and a Q&A with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner.This issue also provides information about the State’s Forensic Rape Exam Direct Reimbursement Program, an explanation of the State’s response to campus sexual assault, and an important legislative update about sexual assault evidence kits.
