This collaborative report, titled “Charting the Path Forward: National Data Highlights on Promising Trends and Continuing Challenges in Campus Sexual Assault Prevention,” provides unprecedented insights on campus safety initiatives. Campus Prevention Network schools will be published annually to highlight committed member institutions, and exemplary prevention work identified through the Sexual Assault Diagnostic Inventory will be featured and awarded at the Campus Prevention Network Annual Summit in June.
Key Findings Reveal:
- Significant differences in funding and staffing levels for prevention exist across institutions, particularly in relation to school size
- Small schools have one prevention FTE for every 4,016 students and spend an average of $5.57/student on sexual assault prevention efforts
- Large schools have one prevention FTE for every 10,576 students and spend an average of $1.55/student on sexual assault prevention
- Nearly 50% of college presidents have spoken publicly about sexual assault three or more times in the past year; only a quarter of college presidents did not speak about sexual assault publicly in the past year
- Over two-thirds of institutions (69%) are reaching undergraduate students at least once a semester with sexual assault prevention programming, and students are playing an increasingly prominent role in delivering these programs
- 75% of schools are utilizing peer educators, yet many are providing these students with less than 5 hours of required training
