Sexual Assault On College Campuses
This week, Dartmouth College is hosting a national summit about sexual assault on college campuses. The conference has raised questions of victim support and privacy, criminal prosecution, and colleges wanting to protect their reputations, along with their students.
We pull apart the difficult issues of how colleges handle sexual assault cases with two interviews: David Lisak, who gave the keynote address at the Dartmouth summit on Monday, provides us with the national context; and Annie Stevens, vice provost for student affairs at the University of Vermont, explains how the state's largest university has changed its protocols in handling sexual misconduct cases.
Also in the program, Anna and Solomon, the story of a Jewish couple from Russia who immigrated to the United States at the turn of the twentieth century. The real-life tale is now being told in an book illustrated by Vermont cartoonist Harry Bliss, and written by Bliss’s mother-in-law, Elaine Snyder.
