SaVE Act

Eliminating Sexual Violence and Misconduct

The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE Act) was passed in March 2013 as part of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA). The Campus SaVE Act applies to Athens State and other public institutions that participate in financial aid programs under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965.

The SaVE Act requires institutions to implement specific policies, procedures, and training related to sexual misconduct, sexual violence, and intimate partner violence.
