New Guidelines on Campus Sexual Violence

June 17, 2016

The American College Health Association on Thursday released new guidelines on how colleges should address sexual and relationship violence. The new guidelines recommend that colleges provide an anonymous reporting option for victims, ensure access to 24-hour crisis response and conduct climate surveys on a regular basis. "The intention of these guidelines is to promote trauma-informed policies and practices that will provide a comprehensive approach to addressing sexual assault and relationship violence on college and university campuses," the ACHA's Creating Guidance for Addressing Sexual Assault Task Force said in a statement.

The full list of guidelines can be found here.
