MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

As college students embark on another school year, new efforts are underway to create a new campus culture: one without sexual assault.

According to the Detroit News, several Michigan schools are launching new programs to help prevent sex crimes.

At the University of Michigan, parents are being asked to take a critical role in discussing sex with their children. The school wants them to focus on the concept of consent.

Michigan State University now requires all students to take an interactive video course to help reduce sexual assault cases. It's also tightening its policy on how it handles complaints.

The initiatives follow a 2011 federal investigation into sexual assaults on college campuses involving more than 100 schools.
