AbstractThe purpose of this research is two-fold: to analyze and compare the results from The American Association of Universities Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Misconduct (AAU Survey) regarding its general connotations among university campuses nationally, including from the University of Arizona; and, to evaluate current programs being offered in national universities and K-12 programs concerning sexual assault training and resources as a part of federal and state laws and school codes. Additionally, the author will present the mission statements of agencies charged with assisting students following sexual assault allegations within the University of Arizona. Subsequently, the author will offer recommendations to improve the ways in which campuses acknowledge student victims of sexual assault, and respond to reported allegations of sexual misconduct.
