A White House task force on sexual assault at college campuses issued new guidelines Tuesday, asking colleges to survey students about their experiences. The task force was headed by Vice President Biden's office and the White House Council on Women and Girls, which is led by Tina Tchen.

Later this morning Vice President Joe Biden will announce new guidelines for how colleges deal with the issue of sexual assault.

The document outlines legal obligations on the part of schools and urges them to conduct surveys to find out what the "climate" is on their campuses.
