A survey finding that 40 percent of the Coast Guard Academy’s female cadets have experienced sexual harassment has prompted school leaders to take more steps to prevent unwanted sexual contact. The academy’s superintendent, Rear Admiral Sandra Stosz, has hired a sexual assault response coordinator and has told The Day of New London that the academy will include in its training ways to reduce sexual assault and to make victims feel comfortable coming forward for help.
