ASSESSING HIGHER EDUCATION: SEXUAL ASSAULT REPORTING  

Liz Karns MPH, JD
  Presentation Abstract
  One in four college females and one in sixteen college males were sexually assaulted according to studies conducted from 1987 to the present. The institutional response to the assault can be key for the victim's recovery and educational goals. Under federal law, institutions of higher education are required to report the number of sexual assault complaints they have received from students. An examination of the reporting rate and the gap between official reports and anonymous surveys of college students is the start of identifying the gap between the student experience and institutional barriers to reporting. Several new measures are proposed and evaluated as outcome points in assessing overall barriers to reporting at the institutional level. A presentation of the outcome measures and institutional responses to heightened scrutiny will be presented.
