Collegiate decision makers can and must take responsibility for protecting their students. And to do this -- they can and must tackle excessive alcohol and other drug use. Until they do, all other interventions and policy changes will merely result in better reporting and fairer handling of truly tragic sexual and other violent assaults that could and should have been prevented in the first place.
