Dartmouth, Hard Liquor, and Sexual Assault

It is not always fashionable to connect alcohol with sexual assault, although studies show significant percentages of sexual assaults involve alcohol. Dartmouth College, however, seems to see a connection.

According to the Associated Press, Dartmouth will ban hard liquor on its campus and increase training programs to prevent sexual violence:
Dartmouth College banned hard liquor on campus Thursday and said all students will have to take part in a sexual violence prevention program all four years they are at the Ivy League school.
It will be interesting to see if Dartmouth's experiment will be effective.
