AAU Campus Activities Report: Combating Sexual Assault and Misconduct

Publication Date: 2017
Abstract: This project was developed to understand what efforts and initiatives AAU member universities have undertaken to prevent and address sexual assault and misconduct. The report follows up on the landmark survey AAU conducted among more than 150,000 undergraduate and graduate students in 2015 regarding the prevalence of sexual assault and misconduct on campuses and on student attitudes about these issues. The survey methodology and key results can be found in the Report on the AAU Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct. This new report provides an extraordinary amount of data as well as dozens of concrete examples of the ways our universities are working to improve efforts to reduce the incidence of sexual misconduct and to address its consequences.
