On January 17, 2013, CONNSACS joined college administrators, victim advocates, legislators, and educators at Trinity College for the release of the 2012 Campus Report Card. The Campus Report Card, which was authored by CONNSACS in conjunction with the Connecticut College Consortium Against Sexual Assault and the Connecticut Campus Coalition to End Violence Against Women, is a snapshot of current sexual assault policies and practices at both private and public Connecticut colleges and universities. In addition to highlighting the progress that has been made throughout the state to address sexual violence, the report identifies both gaps in response and areas for improvement based on promising and nationally recognized best practices.
The problem of sexual violence on college campuses has been well documented. Research indicates that up to one in four women will be sexually assaulted during their college career, and students who experience sexual victimization are more likely than their peers to miss class, perform poorly academically, and withdraw from school altogether.
