Governor's Task Force on Substance Abuse and Sexual Assault on College Campuses, 1991-1992. [Final Report.]
Virginia State Governor's Office, Richmond.
This document presents the findings of a legislatively mandated task force on substance abuse and sexual assault on Virginia's college, university, and community college campuses. Following a series of public hearings on the issues, the Task Force divided into three focus area Committees: Education, Treatment, and Enforcement. Each committee developed recommendations which were used to develop a summary set of 46 recommendations from the Task Force as a whole. The recommendations expand on key principles: (1) campuses should be communities of civility free of violence and substance abuse; (2) students who are victims of substance abuse or violence should have treatment services available; (3) students should be educated about substance abuse and sexual assault during secondary and higher education; (4) students should understand their college's judicial system and the local criminal justice system; (5) administrators, faculty members, alumni, and students leaders should set examples of responsible behavior for the campus community. Includes correspondence, the order establishing and charging the task force, list of hearings and task force members, two surveys, and a list of those who assisted in the process. (JB)
