The "Campus Sexual Assault Victims' Bill of Rights" was enacted in 1992 by the United States Congress as part of the Higher Education Amendments of 1992 (Public Law: 102-325, section 486(c)). It exists as a part of the campus security reporting requirements, known as the Jeanne Clery Act. This law requires that all colleges and universities participating in federal student aid programs afford sexual assault victims certain basic rights. This law also requires the university to notify victims of their option to report their assault to the proper law enforcement authorities. The "Campus Sexual Assault Victims' Bill of Rights" exists as a part of the campus security reporting requirements, commonly known as the Jeanne Clery Act. The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA), signed into law March 7, 2014, imposes new obligations on colleges and universities under its Campus Sexual Violence Act ("SaVE Act") provision, Section 304.
Sexual harassment or sexual violence includes domestic violence, stalking, and dating violence. These acts should be reported to campus safety authorities. Retaliation against individuals reporting sexual harassment and/or sexual violence will not be tolerated and will be addressed.
