"An Act Concerning Sexual Misconduct on College Campuses" has been introduced in Connecticut. Higher Education Committee member Ridgefield state Senator Will Haskell says the bipartisan bill has two key components. It proposes a climate survey concerning sexual misconduct on college campuses, given what he says is the chronic under-reporting of sexual violence. Haskell says this will allow policymakers to better understand the environment on campuses. The bill would also work to protect students who report sexual assault, stalking or violence to a college or university. It ensures an institution could not pursue disciplinary action associated with drinking, drug use or other violations if a student comes forward to report a sexual assault.
