CALCASA hosted a webinar with SAFER Campus this past March for Campus Grantees to discuss how to effectively include students in campus policy development and revision. In the webinar, SAFER spoke about a national study they recently conducted of student anti-rape activists, Moving Beyond Blue Lights and Buddy Systems: A National Study of Student Anti-Rape Activists. Their findings have just been released publicly.
“This study demonstrates the critical role that students can play in combating campus sexual violence and underscores the need for increased resources and supports for students seeking to make change on their campuses.” said Dr. Emily Greytak, SAFER’s Evaluation Coordinator and primary researcher on the study. “At the same time, it illustrates that while some schools are ahead of the curve and are effectively addressing campus sexual violence, many colleges and universities continue to lag behind, failing to adequately address the issue and often ignoring students’ needs.”
