Lasell College talks about enforcing consent knowledge but hasn’t taken any steps to make a difference in educating students on this issue. Lasell should have a mandatory consent class required to graduate. The course would teach students how important consent is, understand how to handle certain situations and help prevent sexual assault cases from happening.
