This webinar presents preliminary findings from a secondary data analysis study using the Haven Online Campus Sexual Assault Prevention program data. The scope and scale of the data used in this study allow for the examination and generalization of findings across contexts and behaviors and may help identify student populations in greatest need of services and resources. In addition, prevalence estimates of campus sexual assault victimization and perpetration across gender, racial/ethnic, and sexual orientation sub-populations will be discussed, and trends in perceptions of campus norms and bystander behavior that can guide campus sexual assault prevention efforts.
Moderator: Dr. Sarah McMahon, Associate Professor and Director, Center for Research on Ending Violence, Rutgers School of Social Work

- Identify prevalence estimates of campus sexual assault victimization and perpetration across student sub-populations
- Understand the relationship between attitudes and perceptions of campus norms and reports of victimization and perpetration
- Identify research gaps and areas of further study needed to understand variation in victimization and perpetration on college campuses
