Lieutenant governor to speak at Daemen on new sexual assault law

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will talk about the state’s new sexual assault prevention law at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at Daemen College.

Hochul’s appearance in the Wick Campus Center Alumni Lounge follows her visit last year to talk about the legislation when it was still in the proposal stage, according to a Daemen press release.

Hochul has been touring colleges and universities to explain it ever since Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed the law last summer.

She has described it as “the nation’s most aggressive policy to fight against sexual assault on college campuses.”

The law known as “Enough is Enough” requires all colleges in the state to adopt a set of comprehensive procedures and guidelines, including a uniform definition of consent, and an amnesty policy.

Audience members will include student leaders and Dr. Greg Nayor, vice president for student affairs. He is also co-chairman of the Western New York Consortium of Higher Education Sexual Assault Awareness, Prevention and Compliance Task Force.
