Using Research to Understand and Prevent the Perpetration of Campus Sexual Misconduct

Thursday, January 18th • 09.00 AM – 12.00 PM

Most programs addressing sexual misconduct on college and university campuses are designed to improve responses to people who have been victimized and, more recently, increase bystander engagement. Building upon what is known about adult and adolescent sex offenders — those who commit sexual assault — this workshop will focus on emerging prevention innovations that can help reduce the perpetration of sexual violence.

From Collaboration to Commitment: Multidisciplinary Approaches to Addressing Sexual Misconduct on Campus

Thursday, January 18th • 09.00 AM – 12.00 PM

Presentation highlights factors in the successful collaboration between California State University, Long Beach and YWCA-Greater LA Sexual Assault Crisis Services. It identifies challenges to implementing campus partnerships with SA/DV agencies. In small groups, participants will identify ways to enhance campus relationships with SA/DV agencies and with campus/local law enfocement, and pinpoint service gaps that local agencies may fill. This session is for Student Affairs professionals seeking to initiate, or further develop, relationships with SA/DV agencies and campus law enforcement.

Assessment strategies: Planning and implementing an outcome evaluation of in-person bystander intervention programs

Thursday, January 18th • 09.00 AM – 12.00 PM

Bystander intervention programs are a promising strategy to reduce victimization, by engaging the community in sexual violence prevention efforts. While there have been countless bystander programs developed in recent years, few have been rigorously evaluated to (1) determine effectiveness at increasing bystander behaviors and (2) identify the intervention components necessary for success. The purpose of this program is to share effective strategies for evaluating in-person bystander intervention programs, using Oregon State University’s experience as a case study.
