Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act. Requires each higher education institution to annually conduct a sexual misconduct climate survey of all students at the institution. Provides that each institution's sexual misconduct climate survey shall include the Board of Higher Education's base survey. Requires each institution to compile a summary of the results of the sexual misconduct climate survey and submit the summary to the Board, as well as publish the summary on the institution's website. Creates the Task Force on Campus Sexual Misconduct Climate Surveys to develop and recommend to the Board the base survey for distribution to institutions and to provide the Board with any related recommendations regarding the content, timing, and application of the base survey. Sets forth other requirements concerning the Task Force and the sexual misconduct climate survey. Includes penalty provisions. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that the Board of Higher Education may consult with the Office of the Attorney General, as necessary, during the Board's review of complaints submitted by students regarding specific questions on the survey. With respect to violations of the amendatory provisions, provides that the Board of Higher Education may impose a civil penalty not to exceed $50,000 (rather than $150,000) on an institution of higher education.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
