Roundtable: Campus Sexual Assault: The Administrative Process and the Criminal Justice System

Subcommittee Hearing

Location: SD-106, Dirksen Senate Office Building

Open in New Window


The purpose of the roundtable was to bring together stakeholders representing a variety of interests and organizations to discuss the respective roles of the university-based administrative process and the criminal justice system in addressing sexual violence.  The roundtable provided an opportunity to hear about challenges and best practices relating to how colleges and universities conduct the administrative process and how law enforcement agencies and prosecutors pursue crimes of sexual violence involving students.  In addition, the roundtable was  a forum to suggest improvements and changes to ensure that survivors have confidence in both systems, that educational institutions have the tools necessary to protect students, and that law enforcement agencies and prosecutors have the training and support they need to bring perpetrators of sexual violence to justice.
