Improving Campus Sexual Assault Prevention: A Best Practice Guide for Administrative Leadership

The purpose of this guidebook is to: review the current state of sexual assault on campus, its impact on survivors and their schools, and how institutions of higher education are currently responding; provide a “lay of the land” in terms of the programs schools are using (and how they may or may not be evidence-based), the degree to which campuses are goal-setting, strategic planning, and evaluating prevention efforts, the amount of prevention funding and human resources in place at institutions, etc.; discuss best practices for sexual assault prevention, together with clear, evidence-based guidelines for a comprehensive prevention approach; and share key recommendations to help institutions make breakthrough progress in their own prevention efforts.
