1 - Toward Justice on Campus: Confronting a Culture of Sexual Violence

Thu, April 16, 12:00 to 1:30pm, Hyatt, Floor: West Tower - Gold Level, Regency D

Session Type: Invited Speaker Session

Abstract

This panel addresses higher education policy and politics regarding sexual assault on campus. As institutions work with the Department of Education to transform response policies, it is important to recognize the value of educational approaches to this complex, critical issue.

Colleges and universities are working on multiple fronts to address the current of sexual violence that surges through society. Administrators are particularly interested in refining educational efforts that help prevent violence on campus, and in discerning and applying appropriate response measures for when it occurs.

The panel will highlight what education researchers know about the extent and effects of sexual assault in order to inform responses to this crisis on college campuses. We hope the presentation will enhance dialogue between policy makers in Washington and college and university administrators regarding responsible and effective ways to address this critical concern, and highlight issues in need of further study.
