Course Overview

The number of sexual assaults among women on college campuses is now estimated at one in five. Often, the use of alcohol and/or drugs is involved – by the perpetrator, the survivor, or both. Sexual assault and rape are two of the most underreported crimes in the U.S. Confusion about what constitutes sexual assault may partially explain why most survivors do not report it.  The fear of survivor-blaming may also help explain why survivors often do not report assault.  Social norms surrounding sexual exchanges may add complexity to recognizing when someone needs assistance. 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.
