The vast majority of student survivors never report to law enforcement or campus officials. But when schools fail to foster an environment in which survivors feel safe reporting, survivors are left without the accommodations they need to stay in school, and perpetrators are rarely held accountable. States should require schools to adopt baseline best practices to encourage reporting, prevent retaliation against survivors, and ensure survivors know where they can access resources after an assault.

This resource is part of our State Policy Playbook. The Playbook outlines key reforms that students, advocates, and state policymakers can pursue to support survivors on campus, keep students safe, and end gender-based   violence in school.
