Developing Male-Focused Sexual Assault Prevention Programs on College Campuses
All college institutions struggle with sexual assault. However, despite significant efforts to educate students about sexual assault and to provide support services to assault survivors, it is estimated that one in five college women will be victims of sexual assault by the time they graduate.
Men account for over ninety percent of sexual-assault incidents. Thanks to a recent alumni grant, Dartmouth’s male undergraduates have been compensated to share their experiences navigating the complex social world of collegiate dating and drinking. With this data, Dartmouth’s sexual assault prevention programs will be modified to better fit our campus’s needs.
