Governor McAuliffe and Attorney General Herring have announced an effort to address sexual assault and violence on college campuses. They along with the presidents of Virginia’s public colleges have signed a pledge to aggressively fight the problem. McAuliffe signed an executive order that creates the Governor’s Task Force on Combating Campus Sexual Violence. The task force will be chaired by Herring (pictured) and include college administrators, advocates, campus and local law enforcement, higher education attorneys and others. The group will have a final report by next June. Also, the Attorney General is reviewing the current policies and procedures for preventing and responding to violence. There will be a training program with college and university staff. A government report says one in five college women will experience sexual assault or an attempted assault, and the assailant is usually somebody they know. Another report states 80% of the incidents go unreported.
