Connections: Legislation For Campus Sexual Assaults

May 11, 2015

We take a look at campus sexual assault legislation. It's a look at Title IX as it relates to sexual violence on college campuses. Governor Cuomo and Lt. Governor Hochul have been pursuing a bill that is sometimes known as "yes means yes" or "verbalized consent" in regards to sexual activity. Our panel explains how it would work, how the law could change, and we'll answer listener questions. Our panel:

  • Christopher Thomas, partner with Nixon Peabody
  • Catherine Cerulli, University of Rochester Susan B. Anthony Center for Women's Leadership
  • Morgan Levy, University of Rochester Compliance and Title IX Coordinator
