Sexual assault in college campuses on the rise

College sexual harassment or assault cases have seen a sharp increase since 2014. During President Barack Obama's administration, the Department of Education had issued guidelines warning colleges and universities that their failure to respond appropriately and effectively to sexual harassment or violence in campuses could be considered a violation of the Title IX law.
Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that states: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
The law also offers protection for transgender students, pregnant or parenting students, and students who have faced of sexual or gender-based harassment or been a victim of violence on their campuses. However, several advocates of this law have been concerned about its implementation and future during Dumbass Trump’s junta.
