NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — On the first day of classes at many of New York’s private universities, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other elected officials discussed tough, new regulations for reporting sexual assaults on campus.
As WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported, the “Enough is Enough” campus rape law includes a new state police Sexual Assault Victims Unit. The law also expands the so-called “yes means yes” definition of consent to New York’s private universities.
“It’s time to change the culture and change the mind-set and change the paradigm,” Cuomo said Wednesday on the NYU campus. “The burden is not on the woman.”
