While sexual violence has been present and prevalent on campus for decades, the work of recent college student activists has made it an issue of major societal and institutional concern. This book makes an important contribution to and provides a foundation for better contextualizing and understanding sexual violence. Each chapter in this edited volume focuses on populations that are not often centered in the discourse of campus sexual violence and accounts for individuals' intersecting identities and how they interlock with larger systems of domination. Challenging dominant ideologies concerning assumptions of white women as the only victims-survivors, the racialization of aggressors, and the deleterious rape myths present in both research and practice, this book draws attention to the complexities of sexual violence on the college campus by highlighting populations that are frequently invisible in research, reporting, and practice. The book places sexual violence on campus in a historical context, centering the experiences of populations relegated to the margins, and highlighting the relationship between racism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of domination to sexual violence. The final chapters of the book explore how critical models of intervention and prevention and a critical analysis of existing institutional policies may be implemented across college campuses to better address sexual violence for multiple populations and identities in higher education. This book will expand educators’ understanding of sexual violence to inform more effective policies, procedures, practice, and research that reaches beyond preventing sexual violence and addresses the dominant systems from which sexual violence stems, in an attempt to eradicate, not just prevent, the act and the issue.

This updated and expanded new edition continues the theme of the second edition that presents a framework by which the reader can gain a broader and deeper understanding of the issues involved with campus violence incidents. In order to understand the current state of campus violence, two sources of information must be considered—the factual and the theoretical. The editors of this book bring together a powerful team of practitioners and scholars from across multiple disciplines to discuss the critical elements associated with campus violence. With the rise of public protest and civil unrest, this book provides a detailed examination of prevention, intervention, and long-term responses to campus violence. Divided into four parts, Part I guides the reader in understanding violence and how it impacts college campuses. Facts, theories, institutional culture, and threats of violence are included. Part II explores how campuses can invest in human infrastructure, prevention, policies, safety strategies, intervention, and response efforts to make campuses safer. Part III covers the ways in which college violence occurs within the context of the law, alcohol, social media, and speakers, including speech and protest. Part IV discusses the specific strains of gender-based violence, suicide, hate crimes, hateful violence, cyberbullying, hazing, kinetic insider violence, and mass shootings. High profile cases provide many examples of catalyst events that changed the paths for institutions of higher education. This user-friendly resource provides college personnel, students, and parents with directed, well-researched strategies to prepare for the possibility of tragedy before it strikes. This unique text will be a valuable tool for college administrators, journalists, psychologists, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys.

At least one in four women attending college or university will be sexually assaulted by the time they graduate. Beyond this staggering statistic, recent media coverage of “rape chants” at Saint Mary’s University, misogynistic Facebook posts from Dalhousie University’s dental school, and high-profile incidents of sexual violence at other Canadian universities point to a widespread culture of rape on university campuses and reveal universities’ failure to address sexual violence. As university administrations are called to task for their cover-ups and misguided responses, a national conversation has opened about the need to address this pressing social problem. This book takes up the topic of sexual violence on campus and explores its causes and consequences as well as strategies for its elimination. Drawing together original case studies, empirical research, and theoretical writing from scholars and community and campus activists, this interdisciplinary collection charts the costs of campus sexual violence on students and university communities, the efficacy of existing university sexual assault policies and institutional responses, and historical and contemporary forms of activism associated with campus sexual violence.
