SUNY Implements Sexual Assault Policy

High-profile campus sexual assault cases are forcing colleges and universities across the country to reconsider how they deal with sexual violence. Now New York’s public university system is the latest to update its sexual assault policies. “Yes means yes” is about to become the rule on SUNY campuses. Affirmative consent for sexual activity is one of the main points in SUNY’s new sexual assault policy. SUNY Broome President Kevin E. Drumm says the affirmative consent part of the policy makes an unwritten rule explicit.
