College Sexual Assault and a White House Response (NPR)


In the aftermath of the April 29 report of the White House task force on sexual assault on college campuses, Dartmouth’s Inge-Lise Ameer joins other guests to talk about the nationwide problem on NPR’s On Point With Tom Ashbrook.

Ameer, the senior associate dean of the College, tells Ashbrook that at Dartmouth, “we are stepping up to the plate and are excited to be working with the federal government and (about) the attention this is getting, and are doing many things that were suggested in the report.”

Ameer points out that Dartmouth will hold a summit on campus sexual assault this summer inviting representatives from colleges and universities throughout the country. “I think we can really learn from each other,” she says.
