White House targets sexual assault on campus

I was glad to see this story:

For the first time, the federal government has issued guidance to schools under the umbrella of Title IX – the law normally associated with gender equity in sports – on how to address issues of sexual assault. According to a 2007 survey financed by the Justice Department, 1 in 5 undergraduate women are victims of attempted or actual sexual assault, as 1 in 16 undergraduate men.

I wonder if it was in response to this excellent series on NPR. If so, the folks at NPR have even more reason to be proud.
