Session Description: The problem of campus sexual assault has received increased scrutiny in recent years, and in 2014 the White House launched the It's On Us initiative, an awareness campaign aimed at ending sexual assault on college and university campuses. As part of this initiative, colleges and universities have been charged with developing and implementing policies for responding to and preventing sexual assault. The purpose of this research is to examine the extent to which colleges have made information regarding sexual assault available to their campus communities and how easily accessible this information is. Relying on a content analysis approach, we examined the websites of a representative sample of 2- and 4-year colleges and universities across the United States to answer the following questions: (1) What information about sexual assault are colleges and universities making available on their websites? (2) What information about campus and community resources for survivors of sexual assault are colleges and universities making available on their websites? (3) How easy is it to access information about sexual assault and resources for survivors of sexual assault that colleges and universities are making available on their websites? The goal of the study is to understand the extent to which colleges have made information about sexual assault policies and prevention available to their campus communities and identify areas of continued need with regard to these efforts.

Learning Outcomes: Participants can expect to learn the following things: 1) The types of information about sexual assault in general that a representative sample of colleges and universities have made available on their websites 2) The types of information about campus and community resources for survivors of sexual assault that a sample of colleges and universities have made available on their websites 3) The ease with which online information about campus sexual assault can be accessed using the websites of a sample of colleges and universities 4) Areas of continued need with regard to college and university presentation and availability of online information about sexual assault and resources for survivors of sexual assault
