It is estimated that 23.1% of female students are raped or sexually assaulted during college (Department of Justice, 2014). As such, universities and colleges have a duty to address and respond to college sexual assault, but despite ongoing research, policy change, and extensive media coverage, the prevalence of sexual violence on campuses remains disturbingly high. This clinical dissertation proposes an enhanced approach to college sexual violence by shifting the focus of research and prevention programming away from the victims and toward the perpetrators. The primary objective of this dissertation was to develop a collection of protocols that may be utilized by colleges and universities to engage in active early identification of students at risk for initiating sexual assault via thorough exploration of risk factors for initiating sexual violence and existing early identification strategies. It is hoped that these recommendations will, in turn, inform intervention efforts in remediating the potential damaging effects for victims, perpetrators, and colleges at large.
