About the Center
College is usually the first time young people get to experience freedom and independence. Many college students choose schools that are far from home in order to live on their own without interference from their parents. However, sometimes students aren’t quite ready for the responsibility that comes with this sudden independence.
Unfortunately, this leaves college students especially vulnerable to sexual assault. In fact, sexual assault on campus is such a widespread and serious problem that there are various laws aimed at preventing and punishing it. Read on to learn about the key legal issues surrounding college sexual assault and the protections in place to help prevent it.

Title IX, VAWA and Clery Act Training
Published January 5, Although dialogue and efforts to prevent and end campus sexual assault have been a longstanding priority for many in the higher education community, the national conversation surrounding this issue has recently risen to a crescendo. Many who have attended a professional student affairs conference or meeting in the past year have found the topic of compliance with the revised Violence Against Women Act to have arisen immediately and to have become a focal point of discussion.
And administrators are solicited on a daily basis by training companies and consultants offering on-site training, invitations to participate in webinars, on-line educational modules, and other resources to prepare them to deal with sexual assault on their campus. With a renewed commitment to create and maintain safe and inclusive environments, the higher education community has devoted its collective and nationwide attention, time, and resources to revise campus policies, to develop new response protocols and disciplinary procedures, to train administrators, and to educate students about sexual assault prevention.
While any effort to enhance our institutional responses to sexual assault on campus is laudable, unfortunately, what seems to have been somewhat overlooked not only by the media but also by well-meaning administrators are the issues of dating and domestic violence.
We are continuing a three-year partnership with Loyola University to address campus dating violence, training their security and health and wellness staff and facilitating groups for women to discuss issues in their dating relationships.
The Center has worked collaboratively and sought guidance from experts to provide important resources for colleges and universities on sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Center has gathered information from the Departments of Justice, Education, Health and Human Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for campus administrators, faculty and staff, campus and community law enforcement, victim service providers, students, parents and other stakeholders as they work to change the culture on their campuses.
This innovative clearinghouse includes the latest research, sample campus policies, protocols, best practices, and information on how to access training opportunities and technical assistance. These promising practices models, trauma informed curricula and cutting edge tools can be replicated, adapted and used with permission when noted as necessary by institutions of higher education to support efforts to end sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking on their campuses.

Opt out or contact us anytime W. Keith Campbell, a professor at the University of Georgia , which is 57 percent female, put it this way: Women on gender-imbalanced campuses are paying a social price for success and, to a degree, are being victimized by men precisely because they have outperformed them, Professor Campbell said. In this way, some colleges mirror retirement communities, where women often find that the reward for outliving their husbands is competing with other widows for the attentions of the few surviving bachelors.

Failure to use alternate transportation can lead to frustration and an inability to take advantage of the excellent educational opportunities at this college. Santa Barbara City College is here to help its students succeed. Coming to campus by bike, bus, or carpool may help you to do so.

Executive Order Title: Legislative Requirements Title IX is a federal law that applies to educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance and prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in an educational institution’s programs or activities, including employment, academic, educational, extracurricular and athletic activities both on and off campus. Title IX protects all people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, which are forms of sex discrimination.
Title IX requires institutions to take necessary steps to prevent sexual assault on their campuses, and to respond promptly and effectively when an assault is reported.

Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today issued an information bulletin to California law enforcement agencies, higher education administrators and campus security personnel, providing enforcement guidance on new and amended sexual assault and campus safety laws. SB requires California postsecondary institutions — in order to receive state funds for financial assistance — to adopt comprehensive, victim-centered policies and disciplinary procedures concerning sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
SB requires campuses to use a preponderance of the evidence standard when adjudicating complaints in the campus disciplinary process.

Our results suggest that women on campuses where they comprise a higher proportion of the student body give more negative appraisals of campus men and relationships, go on fewer traditional dates, are less likely to have had a college boyfriend, and are more likely to be sexually active. These effects appear to stem both from decreased dyadic power among women on campuses where they are more numerous and from their increased difficulty locating a partner on such campuses.
Collegiate sexual and romantic relationships have captured the attention of writers from across the professional spectrum, including novelists Wolfe , journalists Stepp , and not a few scholars e. These observers note that the formal dating script that calls for men to ask women out on—and pay for—dates is no longer the primary heterosexual relationship script on campus, a change that began as early as the s Bogle Dating is not dead, but it seems increasingly understood as commencing after an exclusive and perhaps even sexual relationship is formed England et al.
Despite the attention that has been paid to college relationships, however, little research has explored how institutional characteristics may influence the romantic and sexual relationships of college students and how these relationships may vary across college campuses with different demographic, cultural, and structural characteristics. One institutional factor that may shape the nature of romantic and sexual relationships among American collegians is the campus sex composition.
This gender imbalance could influence romantic and sexual relationships in two ways. The Sex Ratio Question—suggests that an oversupply of women on a college campus gives men more dyadic power in romantic and sexual relationships, which translates into lower levels of relationship commitment and less favorable treatment of women on the part of men and a more sexually permissive climate.
Thus, studies of college students such as this one provide valuable insight into how market characteristics in this case, sex ratios shape romantic and sexual relationships more generally. Before moving to our findings, however, we first explain the two possible mechanisms through which sex ratios are thought to influence relationships: This thesis is derived from social exchange theory and assumes that individuals seek to maximize their rewards and limit their costs and that this occurs within a market system Blau ; Sprecher
