Victims of sexual assault are among the most vulnerable on campus, and such assault remains a pervasive problem. A recent report reviews the problem, confusions of language and definition, and the evidence about current practices and preparedness; analyzes legal issues; and gives special attention to faculty responsibilities. We will discuss the report, review recent cases, and suggest resources.
