Sex Assault, Drinking Push Colleges to Moment of Reckoning

Sunday, 22 Mar 2015 01:20 PM

Colleges and universities nationwide are using education, enforcement and the campus environment to fight the intertwined problems of alcohol and sexual assault.

At the University of Virginia, a social network will connect female freshmen with older mentors. Brown University hopes to make it easier for women to report sexual assault.

In New Hampshire, Dartmouth College has banned hard liquor and plans to completely overhaul its housing system as a way to both boost community and reduce risky behavior.

In doing so, Dartmouth joins a small but growing number of U.S. colleges and universities that have embraced the "residential college" model. It typically involves small, faculty-led communities that include students from various years and backgrounds.
