MINNESOTA (NBC/KNSI) - Minnesota State colleges and universities are adopting an "affirmative" sexual consent policy.
The change was approved Wednesday by the Minnesota State Board of Trustees.
To comply with the policy, students and staff must obtain consent for sex through "words or clear, unambiguous action."
The new policy replaces "no means no" with "yes means yes" when it comes to obtaining sexual consent.
The policy applies to around 375-thousand students at the state-run system's 30 colleges and seven universities, along with faculty and staff and anyone who has sex on campus.
