Obama Task Force on Sexual Assault to Seek Input from Colleges

In a news conference announcing the formation of a White House Task Force on Protecting Students from Sexual Assault, Obama vowed to “work with” – not just dictate to – campus officials in a new initiative that appears to take federal enforcement another step further.

“We’re going to work with colleges and universities and educational institutions of all kinds across America to help them come up with better ways to prevent and respond to sexual assault on their campuses,” Obama said, “and then we’re going to help them put those plans into practice.”
