Universities are failing to take adequate action when crime of sexual violence is reported. With an estimate of 20% of American women in college report being sexually assaulted, a solution to the epidemic must be in place. Our children need to be safe wherever the choose to go. The College Accountability and Safety Act is an attempt to combat this issue by fining universities a $150,000 fine for each offense when it fails to investigate and report complaints of sexual assault to the Department of Education, plus 1% of their total operating budget. Schools need to be held more accountable in counteracting sexual assault among their students, this is just one of the measures that need to be taken to decrease the rate gradually. The College Accountability and Safety Act will also encourage establishing a strong approach for disciplining offenders since past perpetrators might have known that they will face little or no punishment with the way the most school handles sexual assault cases. And increasing awareness through creating a Department of Education database where places with ongoing sexual assault investigations can be listed publicly, which might be harmful to the institution’s reputation, but ultimately, will help young women in knowing what places to avoid, and will then force the university to take up a stronger system of action in handling sexual assault to improve its image. It is on us all if we let schools let offenders free to do more acts of sexual abuse. We need to put an end to it, and we need to put an end to it now. Campuses should investigate all cases of sexual assault, otherwise the institution gets penalized. This is the only available option.
