College Campuses

Intimate partner violence (or dating/domestic violence), sexual assault, and stalking are among the most widespread and dangerous crimes on college campuses.  Similar to the outside community, these types of violence on college campuses are vastly underreported and frequently misunderstood or minimalized.  Intimate partner violence (IPV), sexual assault, and stalking can occur independent or concurrent to one another.  There are many options for students, administrators, and security personnel to improve their university’s prevention methods and response procedures to IPV, sexual assault, and stalking.
