How do Schools Address the Issues of Sexual Violence on Campus?

Some ethnic and gender organizations offer programs such as UCR’s Women’s Resource Centers program SAVE (Sexual Assault and Violence Education Peer Mentors).

Many schools downplay the seriousness or dismiss the case altogether.
Almost one-third (31%) of all rape victims developed PTSD sometime during their lifetime; and more than one in ten rape victims (11%) still has PTSD today.
Rape victims were three times more likely than non-victims of crime to have ever had a major depressive episode.
Rape victims are 13.4 times more likely to have two or more major alcohol problems.
Rape victims were 13 times more likely than non-crime victims to have attempted suicide.
The "Triggering Effect"
Where it occurs on campus
Sexual violence is when sexual activity occurs where consent was not obtained nor given. It is when the victim is forced, coerced or manipulated, there can also be sexually offensive comments that can be considered sexual violence.
The effect that triggers the act of sexual violence when someone is sexually neglected within their peers, is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, or when the perpetrator wants to hurt someone in an emotional and physical way.
Sexual violence usually occurs when the victim is walking alone at night, or she herself is under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and isn't coherent.
From Angie Epifano's Article: “An Attack Of Sexual Assault At Amherst College”, we get a first hand experience of how victims of sexual assault are scrutinized more for coming out which can trigger them.
On UCR’s Confession Page there have been posts that people have submitted that state that when dealing with title nine they were personally told that the school could do nothing about their case.
