This Infofacts/Resources describes the scope of the problem of sexual assault on campus, perpetrator characteristics and situational circumstances that may make assaults more likely to happen, and the role alcohol and other drugs, including rape-facilitating drugs, play in sexual assault. This publication also provides an overview of sexual harassment and a sidebar on stalking on campus. While these are complex problems, campuses can take positive steps to address them; the publication outlines a set of principles and processes that Institutions of Higher Education can implement to prevent and mitigate sexual violence on campus.
