Sexual Assault and Sexual Health Among Undergraduates Online Symposium

Posted: 5/15/2017 (Local Events)

SHIFT is the University’s groundbreaking mixed-methods study examining sexual health and sexual violence among undergraduate students. This research lays the groundwork for innovative evidence-based strategies to prevent sexual assault and to promote sexual health. Join for this daylong symposium exploring findings, policy implications, and key directions for future research.

The focus of the day will be presentations and posters about SHIFT’s research, including:

  • Findings on consensual and non-consensual sex among undergraduates
  • Building a safer, healthier campus: findings on modifiable dimensions of institutional and social context
  • Lessons learned about translating campus-specific research into institutional policy

The program will feature a keynote address from former White House Advisor Caroline Bettinger-Lopez, JD, and a discussion of SHIFT’s findings by nationally recognized expert Martie Thompson, PhD.
