White House launches new website to prevent campus sexual assault

The President’s White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault launched a new website today to provide resources for students dealing with sexual assault and to increase federal transparency on the issue.

The website includes information on federal Title IX regulations, data on Clery Act reports and useful links.

A White House press release that accompanied the launch promised, “We will continue to work toward solutions, clarity, and better coordination. We will review the legal frameworks surrounding sexual assault for possible regulatory or statutory improvements, and seek new resources to enhance enforcement.”

The task force was established on January 22 of this year.
