Responding to Campus Sexual Assault Key Issues (May 2017) from the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence

Several studies of campus sexual assault have confirmed that the incidence is high with significant consequences for survivors including high rates of PTSD, depression, and drug or alcohol abuse, which can hamper both their ability to succeed in school and future employment. At the same time, only a small percentage of these cases are reported, sanctioned by campus judicial boards, or prosecuted, allowing offenders, who will often have multiple victims, to go without punishment as well as creating an unsafe environment for students. Responses to campus sexual assault must support survivors, uphold current available protections, and improve upon prevention.
