Sexual assault on the Nation's college campuses has been receiving more attention lately. Schools are not the safe havens they once appeared to be; college women are at higher risk for sexual assault than their non-college-bound peers. Congress has enacted several laws requiring schools to disclose their security procedures, report crime data, and ensure victims' rights. In 1999, it asked the National Institute of Justice to study school compliance with Federal law. The resulting research report provides a comprehensive benchmark of sexual assault policy on the Nation's campuses. This "Research for Practice" presents key findings from the report. These findings show that schools are complying with Federal law unevenly and that schools need guidance. The researchers identify promising practices, recommend development of model policies and guidelines, and suggest areas for more research.
