SAFER and V-Day Release Report on Campus Sexual Assault Policies in the U.S.

80% Received Grade of C or Lower 

Primary Prevention Programming Continues To Represent Critical Area for Growth

Nearly One-Third of Policies Do Not Fully Comply with Federal Law

In 2009, SAFER partnered with V-Day to launch the Campus Accountability Project (CAP), a national online database that dually functions as a clearinghouse for assessments of sexual assault policies at U.S. institutions of higher education and a teaching tool for student activists looking to analyze and reform their schools’ policies.

Today, SAFER and V-Day release “Making the Grade? Findings from the Campus Accountability Project on Sexual Assault Policies.” The study analyzed nearly 300 formal and informal sexual assault policies from colleges and universities across the U.S. The report provides a snapshot of policies from a sample of four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. during a given time frame.

For an overview of the findings please download the study’s Executive Summary or our press release. To access the full report, please click here.
