The Act Requires CLU to: educate students, faculty, and staff on the prevention/awareness of rape, acquaintance rape, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking provide information on what to do and where to find available resources if you are a victim, witness, or official of CLU The act resulted in CLU creating the Sexual Violence Resource Packet that is available on the CLU website ensure Campus Security Authorities and Mandatory Reporters under Title IX are trained and their identity known to the campus community
The Act Requires CLU to define: Sexual Assault Dating Violence Domestic Violence Stalking
Sexual Assault occurs when sexual contact is non-consensual. NO/STOP means NO consent. Consensual: an individual is a willing participant in the sex act. Non-consensual: An individual is unable to give consent if: incapacitated by the influence of drugs or alcohol suffer from a mental or physical disorder that makes them incapable of offering consent acting under threats, duress or force NOTE: Consent to sexual contact is not implied because of prior consent, and a relationship between partners, such a marriage or formal dating relationship, does not imply or create consent for sexual contact.
Dating Violence is violence committed by a person: who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim; and where the existence of such a relationship shall be determined based on consideration of the following factors: Length of the relationship Type of relationship; frequency of interaction between the parties
Domestic Violence includes crimes of violence committed by a current or former spouse of the victim, or by a person with whom the victim shares a child in common who is or has cohabitated with the victim as a spouse who is similarly situated to a spouse of the victim under the domestic or family violence laws receiving grant monies or is protected under the domestic or family violence laws or by any other person against an adult or youth victim who is protected from that person’s acts by domestic or family violence laws.
Stalking is engaging in a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to: fear for his or her safety or the safety of others, or suffer substantial emotional distress. Stalking can be part of dating and domestic violence. An actual threat of violence does not need to be made for the conduct to be stalking.

Perpetrator becomes quickly involvement with victim and Needs the victim for self-assurance and validation Needs a relationship with someone who makes them feel loved and will be loyal to them Only knew the victim for a few months before the start of a serious relationship Unrealistic Expectations Perpetrator wants victim to be perfect Compares relationship to those in movies and blames victim if expectations not met Victim expected to change anything about self that perpetrator sees fit.
