Violence Against Women Resource Guide

The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (“VAWA”), which President Obama signed into law on March 7, imposes new obligations on colleges and universities under its Campus Sexual Violence Act (“SaVE Act”) provision, Section 304. The Department of Education published the final rules that colleges and universities must follow to implement these changes on October 20, 2014. These new regulations will become effective July 1, 2015.

The regulations mandate that schools provide information and support services to victims of dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.  This page will provide information about support services available to victims and their dependents in the metropolitan New Orleans area.
