New Sexual Assault Guidelines - One College Ahead of the Curve
GAINESVILLE - New federal guidelines have been announced to help with reporting sexual assault on college campuses and one school is ahead of the curve.
Santa Fe College has expanded its Title IX outreach that protects women on campus from sexual harassment and sexual assault.
The college has their own website to help with reporting and counselors says the awareness campaigns are only going to continue.
Lara Zwilling, Santa Fe College: "there's a lot of legislation coming up especially with the Violence Against Women's Act thats going to require that any person who reports they have been sexually assaulted on campus or off campus...even if they don't want we are going to provide them whatever resources links whatever they need to help them heal."
The new guidelines also suggest taking surveys of students to report abuse anonymously...something the Government hopes to make a requirement by 2016.
