Study looks at drinking venues and college sexual assault

Research has long pointed to there being a connection between heavy drinking and sexual aggression at college campuses. But there remains a good deal unknown about the specifics of this link.

Increased understanding of this association and other issues related to campus sexual assault is important. It can help inform colleges and universities of what methods of abuse prevention may have a particularly high likelihood of being effective. What prevention steps schools take has a very big impact on overall student safety.

A recent study indicates that where college heavy drinking occurs may have impacts on likelihood of sexually abusive behavior. This research looked at the behavior of a group of over 1,000 college men. The study found that, among such students, attending drinking venues, such as pars and parties, was a stronger predictor of sexual aggression than things such as binge drinking.

This suggests that what prevention and enforcement measures colleges and universities take regarding party houses, bars and other drinking venues could be of considerable importance. What steps would you like to see schools take on this front?

As what measures schools take to prevent campus sexual assault matter a great deal, so too do what steps they take in response when abuse occurs. When schools fail to act appropriately on this front, it can put abuse survivors in danger of not getting the protections and justice they deserve. Experienced attorneys can help survivors pursue legal actions for protecting their rights and well-being when schools don’t respond properly to campus sexual assault.
