The number of sexual assaults among women on college campuses is now estimated at 1 in 5. The potential consequences of sexual assault include a host of individual, social, and academic problems. Individuals may exhibit symptoms of depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among other conditions. They may demonstrate problems with academic performance, indulge in excessive use of alcohol or drugs, and gravitate away from friends and family. Professionals can address these concerns in a comprehensive, multilevel, and systematic way, from individual interventions to entire campus community interventions. An interprofessional approach to prevention, assessment, and intervention is essential for optimal outcomes. Collaborative university team members – such as faculty, students, student organizations, administrators, on-campus police, nurses, and physicians – offer unique skill sets to address the problem of on-campus sexual violence.


After completing this module, the practitioner will be able to:
  • Define rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual harassment
  • Describe the prevalence characteristics of sexual assault among female college students
  • Identify barriers to reporting sexual assault and violence
  • Specify two federal laws that apply to sexual assault on college campuses
  • Describe ways that university professionals can collaborate to create a safe environment for students.
