The White House has issued a report about their response to sexual assault on college campuses, which is called the Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. This response has led to the launch of the website: Not Alone (https://www.notalone.gov). Please visit the website and feel free to use it as a resource for you or anyone you know that has experienced sexual assault on college campuses.
There are four distinct categories highlighted within the website that provides different but very valuable information. These sections are located at the top of the website page where you can easily navigate between sections.
This first section (Students) serves as a guide to help students on college campuses learn about their rights as students, know how to file a complaint, and learn about helpful terms and definitions related to sexual assault issues.
The second section (Schools) is where people can learn about the responsibilities, policies, and rights of universities/schools in dealing with sexual assault issues. It also provides additional information about the prevention techniques and materials used to solve this issue.
The third section (Resources) provides you the opportunity to search for resources and services according to where you are located in the United States in looking for support or guidance.
The fourth section (Data) provides information about school level enforcement activities conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights. This section also provides a map that shows reports from different universities that involve the reporting and researching of sexual assault related issues.
Overall, this website is a great tool that provides resources to services in order to help students involved in sexual assault issues. It also provides helpful information in learning more about sexual assault and important information around this issue.
