In Response to: New Data about Campus Sexual Assaults
Reading the President’s Page on “New Data about Campus Sexual Assault” (Nov. 11), I was struck by the emphasis first on disciplinary actions and then on awareness-raising. Both are vitally important, but where is the Honor Code that each student signs that commits him and her to certain behavior? I recall the code against cheating and requiring me to report any others who cheat that was deeply embedded in me in my years at Princeton — and that I think molded behavior better than discipline and awareness-raising.
Why not a code so that every student pledges not to be part of sexual assault and to step in whenever such is occurring?
