Sexual Assault on Campus: The Problem and the Solution

Overview

Recent statistics indicate that 25 percent of all female college students will experience some form of sexual assault by the time they graduate. Even that figure is probably an underestimate, since many women who are assaulted drop out of school. Very few of these incidents are reported, and when they are, campus authorities often mishandle the case, causing further trauma to the victim. Of the small number of cases pursued through campus judicial procedures or reported to the police, only a fraction result in ...

Overview

Recent statistics indicate that 25 percent of all female college students will experience some form of sexual assault by the time they graduate. Even that figure is probably an underestimate, since many women who are assaulted drop out of school. Very few of these incidents are reported, and when they are, campus authorities often mishandle the case, causing further trauma to the victim. Of the small number of cases pursued through campus judicial procedures or reported to the police, only a fraction result in conviction. Why does no one seem to know what to do about the problem of sexual assault on campus? Why do so few women report their assault? Why are so many cases mishandled? Why do some college administrators so fear being sued that their fear becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy? Why are some institutions better equipped to handle the problem, and what is the best way to handle sexual assault on campus? Carol Bohmer and Andrea Parrot, both recognized experts on the problem of rape, particularly acquaintance rape, examine these and other questions in this landmark book. Sexual Assault on Campus combines social science evidence, analysis of legal doctrine and cases, and interviews with victims, their parents, campus security officers, and college administrators. Based on the results of their own qualitative study on the responses to complaints of sexual assault on campus, the authors offer important new guidance to all involved in the problem, particularly administrators, lawyers, and service providers working with students - from rape crisis centers and social workers to residence hall directors. Further, Sexual Assault on Campus includes case studies, making it important reading for students of social work, criminology, and law and society programs. And certainly victims of campus rape, their families, and friends will want to read this book - the first ever to deal effectively with the aftermath of sexual assault on campus.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses is alarmingly high. In this thoroughly researched study, academics Bohmer (public & international affairs, Univ. of Pittsburgh) and Parrot (human service studies, Cornell Univ.) discuss all aspects of the problem. Coverage, which focuses mainly on legal issues, includes definitions of terms, landmark events in acquaintance/date rape history, how different colleges have handled the crime, campus codes and security forces, legislation, and solutions. Of particular interest are the descriptions of cases that culminated in lawsuits against the colleges where the assaults occurred. Although intended primarily for victims, counselors, representatives of women's centers, and college administrators, this clearly written book will be of interest to many others. Essential for all academic libraries and recommended for public libraries.-- January Adams, ODSI Research Lib., Raritan, N.J.
