Biden Brings Campaign Against Sexual Assaults To OSU

Sep 17, 2015

Vice President Joe Biden comes to Ohio State University as part of the administration's "It's On Us" campaign against sexual assaults on college campuses. Watch video of the speech. 

The visit comes as Ohio State University announces its own initiatives aimed at reducing sexual assaults on campus, including mandatory sexual violence awareness training for all freshmen next year.

The efforts unveiled Thursday also include online training for all students beginning next week, the hiring of an additional sexual violence prevention coordinator and more advocates to support students.

Ohio State President Michael Drake says in a statement provided to The Associated Press that the university is deeply concerned by sexual misconduct and relationship violence both at Ohio State and universities across the country.

A task force including students, staff and faculty also will brainstorm new ways to prevent and respond to such misconduct and violence.
