EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. - On the first day of class at East Stroudsburg University, Senator Bob Casey talked to students about what he calls a "silent epidemic" on campuses.
That epidemic is sexual assault.
Casey talked about the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, which creates uniform reporting standards for sexual assaults and requires schools to provide resources to victims.
Casey said everyone has a role in working to combat sexual violence on campus.
"If you see something, you should say something. If you see something, you should try to intervene if you can. Sometimes, you hear something. Sometimes, you see something happening at a party," said Casey.
According to the senator's office, campus sexual assaults impact one in five women and one in 20 men nationwide.
