The Student and Presidential Committee on Sexual Assault held a town hall meeting on Thursday in Paganucci Lounge at which students, faculty members and administrators discussed the committee's recently released recommendations for combating sexual assault. The recommendations were drafted during January's Sexual Assault Symposium, which was attended by members of several student organizations. Faculty members suggested mandatory training and education for both students and faculty members to combat sexual violence. Theater professor Peter Hackett reiterated the importance of including specific statistics in the guidelines, saying that the statistics were "very compelling." Students should not "carry this burden alone," Hackett said, and should reach out to the trustees because they have important influence on the matter.
