The role of universities in adjudicating cases of sexual assault among their students has been the object of heavy scrutiny in recent months. UNC, now the subject of two federal reviews evaluating its handling of sexual misconduct, has been at the fore of the conversation. The efforts of students Landen Gambill and Andrea Pino, and alumna Annie Clark to call attention to what they say is UNC's flawed and discriminatory procedures have been the subject of coverage in national media outlets.

But similar efforts have been playing out across the country. Few major universities have been left untouched by the national focus. Below is a list, updated daily, of articles surrounding the issue submitted by student newspapers across the country.

UC-Berkeley: University must implement anti-sexual assault training

At the UC Student Congress, hosted by the UC Student Association last August, the UCSA adopted the UConsent campaign at the urging of hundreds of students in attendance. UConsent is the University of California-wide campaign against sexual assault, which works to support a culture of consent through increased “awareness, education and advocacy for improved resources at both the campus and state levels.” Since March, the UCSA has been encouraging students to sign a petition calling on the UC administration to put its money where its mouth is and provide a $420,000 yearly budget to mandate in-person, peer-led and survivor-informed consent and bystander-intervention training to students, staff and faculty.

Chicago: A seat at the table

In spring 2013, the Student Government (SG) Annual Allocations Committee denied the UChicago Clothesline Project funding for the 2013 – 14 school year. The community response to this denial was powerful; an online petition drew nearly 1,000 signatures and funding was granted by the SG Finance Committee that summer. In spring 2014, SG established a $10,000 Sexual Assault Awareness fund for the 2014 – 15 school year, which we are finally seeing in action; most of the funds have been used for Sexual Assault Awareness Week, set for eighth week, May 17–22. This week has been sponsored in part by generous grants from the Campus Dialogue Fund, the Office of LGBTQ Student Life, and the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (OMSA). The programming includes workshops by RSOs and the third annual spring installment of the UChicago Clothesline Project in Hutch Courtyard. It boasts events featuring prominent anti–sexual violence activists, including Dana Bolger, a founding co-director of Know Your IX; Wagatwe Wanjuki, coiner of the nationally trending #SurvivorPrivilege hashtag; and John Kelly, the first person to testify before the Senate about queer dating violence. This student-led, survivor-driven programming amplifies sexual assault survivors’ voices in an institutional environment that silences them.
