In March 2013 President Obama signed into law the Campus SaVE Act — Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act. This bipartisan supported Act seeks to prevent and reduce incidents of stalking, sexual assault, and relationship violence as well as ensure assistance, services, and justice for those who are victims/survivors of these crimes. This is vital to successful matriculation for all students.
SaVE updates the Campus Security Act (also known as Clery Act) and serves as a companion to Title IX as it seeks to create and/or enhance transparency, accountability, education, adjudication, and victim rights. Nicholls State University takes this charge very seriously. One vital component in this effort is the university’s Policy Statement which describes the University’s comprehensive approach to addressing these issues and complying with SaVE.
