Sexual assault is a difficult subject to think about and talk about. Yet it is a harsh reality among both male and female students, even at Trinity. Thus, I offer this advice: If your child ever confides that s/he has been sexually assaulted, two things are critically important when you respond. First, listen empathically to convey that you are willing to listen nonjudgmentally and offer support throughout the healing process. This includes affirming that the assault is not your child's fault and that you are available to talk at any time. Second, it is essential that s/he have as much control as possible in handling the events following the assault. This pertains to everything from how much information s/he chooses to share with you to decisions about whether to pursue any disciplinary or judicial action about the assault. For more information about helping a son or daughter who has been sexually assaulted, click here, and visit Trinity’s Sexual Assault website. Survivors of sexual assault may wish to make an appointment with a counselor at Counseling Services or take advantage of the services offered by the San Antonio Rape Crisis Center.

However, students are still required to have health insurance and provide proof of the coverage annually. That process will now happen using an online system that is linked to your fall semester bill. That system should be operational by April 1. Instructions are available online.
Students who complete the online waiver may provide proof of personal health insurance or enroll in the University-sponsored student health insurance plan. Students who do not complete the waiver by July 1 will have the premium for the student health insurance plan included on their electronic bill for the fall semester. If you do not want that insurance you will have several weeks to provide proof of other insurance and have that charge removed from your bill. Students who do not do so will automatically be enrolled in the student health insurance plan, after which the premium will not be refundable.
If you know that
your student will be enrolling in the Student Health Insurance plan they may
enroll now so that they can access benefits when the policy term starts on
August 10, 2014. The premium of $1216 will be included in their bill for the

With the exemplary moral commitment that has distinguished his reporting career, Bonner follows Holt's battle to save Elmore's life. According to the New York Times, “Anatomy of Injustice” is Holt’s book more than Elmore’s; it chronicles her journey through the prosecution’s omissions, manipulations and deceits to uncover the truth, and, in the process, turns a sad story into an engrossing true-crime tale.
The Reading TUgether keynote lecture will be delivered by Diana Holt, LLC Attorney, with special guest Edward Lee Elmore, on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 at 7 p.m. in Laurie Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
