BERKELEY, Calif. — The University of California has told students that sex without a firm “yes” will be considered nonconsensual under a newly expanded policy on sexual violence that follows a series of allegations that U.C. Berkeley mishandled campus sexual assault cases.
The U.C.’s new policy, which covers sexual and domestic abuse, harassment and stalking of students and staff on its 10 campuses, was made public Friday — just days after 31 women filed a federal complaint alleging that U.C. Berkeley behaved with “deliberate indifference” to their cases, which covered a four decade period.
“We have no tolerance for sexual violence or harassment of any kind,” said U.C. President Janet Napolitano in a release. “The university must, and will, hold itself to the highest standards, and I expect all of our locations to do everything possible to make everyone aware of these standards.”

Weißt du, ich will mich schleichen
leise aus lautem Kreis,
wenn ich erst die bleichen
Sterne über den Eichen
Wege will ich erkiesen,
die selten wer betritt
in blassen Abendwiesen -
und keinen Traum, als diesen:
Du gehst mit.
