Sexual assault continues to be a problem on college campuses despite greater attention to reducing rates of assault and an increased presence in the public discourse. Programming has been historically directed towards women by providing them with information about how to keep themselves safe rather than confronting a climate conducive to sexual violence. This important volume illuminates the urgency of combating sexual violence on college campuses. The authors depict in detail empirically supported approaches to combating climates conducive to sexual violence and ways to empower all members of the campus community to actively prevent sexual violence.

The aim of this series is to make cutting-edge research available to graduate students, academics, and scholars in the field of social psychology and related disciplines.
Bringing together contributions from researchers and scholars based in the Americas, volumes reflect a broad understanding of social psychology and consider current and emerging issues relating to the study of human behavior and thought.
Each volume will be tightly focussed on a specialist topic and will make a conceptual contribution to the field by addressing existing literature, presenting detailed research, and advancing understanding or theory.
Example topics may relate to interpersonal relationships, social attitudes, intergroup relations, cyberbullying, gender and sexuality, climate change psychology, and sports psychology, as well as applied issues.
