Campuses Try To Stop Sexual Assault

Vice President Joe Biden was at the University of New Hampshire Monday. He was there not to talk up the campaign, but campaigning against sexual violence — specifically sexual violence on college campuses.

How colleges and universities respond — or don’t — to sexual assaults on campus is difficult and crucial. This week, the federal government launched an initiative to reinforce guidelines on how schools must deal with sexual assault on campus. Question is, is that enough? Or will it take more to change attitudes and cultures both among students and college administration?
