Addressing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Book

In spring 2018, we released this New Directions for Student Services book Addressing Sexual Violence in Higher Education, co-edited by Jody Jessup-Anger and me. The co-edited book grew out of the work of the ACPA Presidential Task Force on Sexual Violence in Higher Education that Jody at I co-chaired. That group began meeting in 2014 and produced recommendations for ACPA as an association and published the monograph Beyond Compliance in 2015. The response to Beyond Compliance made it clear that students, faculty, and practitioners were eager for further guidance and practical recommendations to address sexual violence.

Addressing Sexual Violence in Higher Education is broken into two main sections. The first section outlines conceptual framing of sexual violence including historical perspectives, framing sexual violence as a social justice issue, and the importance of locating addressing sexual violence as student affairs work. The second section outlines concrete and practical recommendations for prevention, policy, supporting survivors, adjudication, and institutional leadership. This is a great resource for Title IX coordinators as well as other higher education leaders who want and need to get up to speed on these issues.
