Calculate the number of students who transfer schools as a result of sexual assault and the associated lost revenue for an institution. This tool helps you show the value of effectively preventing or responding to sexual assault as part of student success and retention efforts.
By now, there is no doubt: campus sexual assaults have the potential to wreak havoc on the budgets of colleges and universities. There have been some initial efforts to measure the cost of sexual assault for an institution of higher education (IHEs). These estimates only provide a partial picture. After all, there are many other costs associated with a sexual assault for an institution, like:
To develop this calculator, researchers reviewed research literature on sexual assault and retention, worked with nationally regarded researchers, and gathered information on retention rates.
From these sources, Vector Solutions has developed this new tool which estimates the dollars an institution loses when survivors of sexual assault transfer out of the school.
