Towson University is committed to preventing sexual assault and promoting the safest possible environment for our students. In addition to our strong commitment to address sexual assault, Towson University is one of the 10 institutions that formed The Maryland Collaborative. The Maryland Collaborative was established to reduce college drinking and related problems through the application of a range of evidence-based strategies.

A dual degree program that will debut in Baltimore County high schools next summer will allow qualified students to pursue college courses as early as their sophomore year and earn an associate of arts degree along with a high school diploma. The partnership between county schools and the Community College of Baltimore County will save parents money, challenge motivated students and allow 18-year-olds to transfer to a four-year college as juniors. The county will recruit candidates for its Diploma to Degree program, believed to be the first in the state, in the spring from the current class of high school freshmen.

Westminster Mayor Tom Ferguson said he never imagined he would find himself welcoming to town the author of a play as candid and jarring as The Vagina Monologues. But feminist playwright Eve Ensler, who promotes her work around the world, is coming to Carroll Community College for a local rendition of her play Friday. It is the county's fifth performance of The Vagina Monologues, and organizers said they have been hoping for years to lure Ensler here. Still, given Ensler's celebrity and worldwide travels, activist and organizer Sylviea Tejeda can't believe the celebrated playwright is visiting.

Last Friday, the White House announced an "It's On Us" initiative aimed at combating sexual assaults on college campuses. I'm all in favor of combating sexual assault, but the first priority in combating a problem is understanding it. That's not the White House's first priority. Roughly six weeks before Election Day, its chief concern is to translate an exciting social media campaign into a get-out-the-vote operation. Accurate statistics are of limited use in that regard because rape and sexual assault have been declining for decades.

Like an echo that took more than 20 years to reverberate, the cry is heard once again on college campuses:"Hell no, we won't go."Some members of another generation of college students want to give peace a chance. As with the Vietnam War, the conflict in the Persian Gulf is beginning to meet resistance on college campuses across the country."I cannot sit back and allow myself to be drafted. I just think it's a matter of time before [the draft is] reinstated, and it scares me, FTC and it scares a lot of other students," said Eric Hansen, 23, a student at the University of Maryland's School of Social Work in Baltimore.
