Letter from ACE President Molly Corbett Broad to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions in advance of the June 26 hearing, “Sexual Assault on Campus: Working to Ensure Student Safety.”

The letter outlines the efforts colleges and universities are making to enhance educational programs to prevent sexual assaults and ensure a prompt, supportive and equitable response when they do occur. It also addresses steps Congress could take to facilitate the higher education community’s response to campus assaults, and the difficulties brought about by the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights policies and procedures in this area.
