Institutions of higher education; sexual assault; memorandum of understanding and policies. Requires the governing board of each public or private institution of higher education to (i) establish a written memorandum of understanding with a local sexual assault crisis center or other victim support service and (ii) adopt policies that mandate the referral of a sexual assault victim to the sexual assault crisis center, provide clear guidance on linking victims to other community resources, provide options for victims who do not want to make an official report to make an anonymous report, and provide amnesty for victims who are concerned that an official report might jeopardize their academic status.
