Did you know that more than 50% of college sexual assault cases involve alcohol? Despite media perceptions, date rape drugs are rarely used. Schools vary widely in how they comply with requirements to report and respond to sexual victimization. Many schools need guidance on how to handle security, report crime data, and ensure victim rights.

This forum examined the prevalence, nature, and reporting of various types of sexual assault experienced by university students, including those perpetrated by "undetected" rapists, and discussed evidence-based prevention strategies.

This event was the last of four in the Series on Sexual Violence, sponsored by the Government Innovators Network and the National Institute of Justice.  Recordings and presenters' slides are now available for each event in the series:
