"Student Life, Relationships and the Law: Confronting Domestic Violence in Higher Education"
With the explosion of high-profile domestic violence incidents reported in recent months, it would be easy to assume that Pepperdine School of Law's October 10-11 conference, "Student Life, Relationships and the Law: Confronting Domestic Violence in Higher Education," was planned in response. The conference featured 18 academics, lawyers, educators, mental health professionals, and student activists sitting on four panels and delivering addresses over the course of the two-day conference. Speakers discussed current legal systems like Title IX and the Clery Act, coordinated campus responses across services and disciplines, residential and Greek life, and intersectional responses that respond to student diversity. Speakers from schools such as Penn State Law, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia shared their institutions' current strategies and goals. Dana Bolger, founder and co-director of KnowyourIX.org – an organization committed to empowering student voices on campus – gave the keynote address and called on universities to move away from policies built around liability and risk assessment to campus cultures built on dignity, safety, care, and justice.
