Sexual Assault on College Campuses
Emily Stoken, Marissa Kemerer, Hayley Treml, Ellen Gray
"Sexual assault is a crime of violence. It is meant to degrade, humiliate, and control. The attacker can be a stranger or someone known and trusted. It can happen to anyone, at any time, at any place. The trauma of being assaulted is a shock from which many victims never fully recover."
-Eastern New Mexico University

This IS a reality
("Here's Your Taking")
Use the information we have to
make a difference.
Buddy system guidelines
Utilize the power in numbers!
Student responsible should refrain from alcohol or drug use.
Getting dormitory RAs involved in student safety
Justice must be served to those confirmed of committing the crime.

"The campus disciplinary program seeks to determine whether the institution's sexual misconduct policy was violated, and the criminal justice system seeks to determine whether the alleged attacker is guilty of a criminal act."
Our survey found that most people are in favor of expulsion of the confirmed perpetrator.

All misconceptions must be eliminated as effectively as possible.
Accessibility is crucial to raising overall awareness.
Policy must present defined rules, definitions, laws and reporting requirements.
Prevention of future threats is just as important as serving justice to crimes that have already occurred.
To accomplish we must take action.
The Justice Department estimates that fewer than 5% of attempted or completed rapes are reported to law officials.
