HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s 12 community colleges will be rolling out new, interactive software to help educate students about domestic violence, bystander intervention, stalking and consenting to sex.

The initiative, announced Wednesday, is part of an effort by the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system, anti-domestic and sexual violence organizations, the Chief State’s Attorney and law enforcement to prevent and address sexual violence on campus.

Community college students will participate in Not Anymore, a web-based program that uses peer-to-peer testimonials by survivors and bystanders of sexual assault, video-based scenarios, animation and graphics.

The 12 schools are also pursuing agreements with the Chief State’s Attorney and law enforcement to investigate reported incidents. Among other things, they will designate points of contact at each agency.

A 2014 state law required campuses to address sexual assault.
