The legislation, passed unanimously on Thursday, requires higher education institutions to strengthen their policies on sexual violence . 

Excerpt: "Katia Santiago-Taylor, [of] the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, said she expects the legislation will foster a healthier environment for survivors to recover from their traumatic experience. 'Having access to information, to resources, to the policies and the services, it will most definitely promote healing,' Santiago-Taylor said."
