Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, the California State University, the University of California, independent institutions of higher education, and private postsecondary educational institutions as the segments of postsecondary education in this state.
This bill would express the intent of the Legislature to enact later legislation that would require the California State University, the University of California, independent institutions of higher education, and private postsecondary educational institutions to ensure free sexual assault kits and related medical services are available within a 5-mile radius of each campus or to otherwise provide the same services to students for free at the campus health center.
