It is that time of year again isn’t it? So I decided to share with readers a page that they can bookmark and get a great deal of information from. I wanted to save you some search engine time.
In this post I have provided statistics, my gathering of resources, some of the latest news stories surrounding campus sexual assault and even a link to The Federal Campus Sexual Assault Victim’s Bill of Rights.
