Time to get serious about sexual assault on campus

Colleges and universities all too often react to sexual assault first and foremost to shield the institution, not to help the victims.

Claire McCaskill and Kirsten Gillibrand aim to get campuses to increase reporting and change the ways they respond to sexual assault.
