Description

With national conversation turned toward sexual assault on college campuses, knowing how to identify, prevent, and address these incidents in a safe, and productive way is essential for administrators and faculty. Uprooting Sexual Violence in Higher Education provides colleges and universities with a foundational understanding of twelve risk factors related to sexual assault, stalking, and intimate partner violence. By presenting a blend of theory, research, and the personal reflections of professionals ‘on the front lines,’ this book provides insights into the motivations, attitudes, and behaviors behind sexual assault on campus, as well as strategies for mitigating these risk factors in an effort to tailor prevention efforts. Whether you are seeking a way to navigate the recent regulations on sexual violence from the federal government or merely wish to safeguard the welfare of students on your campus, this book will provide the neccesary, and invaluable foundation you need to empower, respect, and support all students.

Reviews

"The authors draw on an array of theory, literature, and case studies to explain the issues surrounding sexual violence, help the reader understand and apply the information, and offer practical ways to address the behavior on campuses. The careful and thoughtful architecture of this important material makes this a must read for those leading violence prevention efforts on college and university campuses."

--Kathy Cavins-Tull, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Texas Christian University

"This book provides essential information for taking a proactive approach to sexual misconduct. While aimed at higher education, the information here can be used by anyone seeking to understand the issues and to identify the root causes in our culture and society. The guidance offered through front-line practitioners and the discussion questions are solid tools for immediate implementation that make this a valuable item for campus toolkits."

--Georgina Dodge, Title IX Coordinator, Chief Diversity Officer, and Associate Vice President, University of Iowa
