I have grown so tired with how casually and poorly reports of rape are met on campus. In the article linked below, even victims sometimes don't consider these alcohol-fueled sexual assaults as the actual violent acts they are. Such is the hedonistic brainwashing of the typical college campus. Happily, some schools, including my own, seem to be toughening up responses.
I pray that my female students are safe on campus, and yours, too.
Such are the shocking facts behind the alleged sexual assaults recently at two of North Jersey’s leading public colleges.
If there is any heartening news from these horrific stories, it’s that officials at William Paterson University in Wayne and Ramapo College in Mahwah seem to be taking seriously the allegations that female students were raped on their campuses.
This is no small achievement. At far too many colleges nationwide, experts say, allegations of sexual assault are either quietly ignored or covered up. At William Paterson and Ramapo, law enforcement agencies were notified and arrests were made — quickly.
Now consider a troubling question that may require even deeper reflection by the colleges beyond merely summoning police and suspending rape suspects:
Do the colleges bear any responsibility in these cases?
