California Governor Signs Sexual Assault Bill
This deserves a “yes!” I’m very pleased Gov. Jerry Brown signed a sexual assault bill requiring “affirmative consent” on California campuses, as well as a bill providing loans for undocumented students. Both measures are important to the University of California community. We adopted the “affirmative consent” standard across our 10 UC campuses months ago and aim to be national leaders in preventing and responding to sexual violence. The revolving loan program, meanwhile, helps undocumented students get much-needed funding to fill gaps in federal financial aid.
