This collection of highly acclaimed research articles, published in the peer-reviewed journal Violence and Victims, disseminates state-of-the-art information about sexual violence on campus. It addresses the controversy surrounding statistics on the prevalence of college sexual assault and its tendency to go unreported, as well as contention regarding university policies and response (or lack thereof) by administrators.

Articles present research related to victims and perpetrators, predictive factors, efforts to promote awareness, and prevention programming. Expert researchers from such disciplines as psychology, psychiatry, sociology, criminology, counseling, nursing, and social work provide interdisciplinary perspectives with articles addressing gender differences and the role of alcohol use in sexual assault victimization, perceived risk to experience sexual victimization, intimate partner sexual assault and objectification, a bibliotherapy approach to prevention, the role of impulsivity among perpetrators, the role of administrators and bystanders, and many other topics. This research collection about college sexual assault will help to foster greater understanding of this controversial issue, provide a foundation for further research, and promote strategies of awareness and prevention on our college campuses.
