The Times Union interviewed Lindsey Crusan-Muse, director of St. Peter’s Crime Victim Services, for its article examining New York state’s Enough is Enough Act. Enacted in 2015, the law is aimed at curbing sexual assault on college campuses.
According to the article, two years of data suggest that sexual assault and harassment are still widely underreported by college students across the state.
From the story:
