Know your rights for college students

     Students have the right to an education free from violence and discrimination. If a student is assaulted, schools are legally obligated to take action to stop the discriminatory environment. However, some schools have historically been lax or even dismissive of reports of sexual violence, which leaves students in the lurch and discourages reporting. Helping schools be accountable to their students, and to work with them in partnerships for prevention, is our goal.
