IACLEA is proud to partner with the American College Health Association (ACHA) and the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) on the Campus Sexual Assault Responses Survey (CSAR). Researchers encourage your prompt participation.
Several hundred IACLEA members will be selected, randomly, to participate. If you receive the survey from NORC, please respond by October 15, 2020.
To access survey modules, designate someone on your campus as a knowledgeable participant, find answers to frequently asked questions, or retrieve your PIN, visit the project website at CSARSurvey.org. Additionally, you can learn more about the study on NORC’s website
Preparedness for trauma-informed responses to sexual assault is not advanced universally across U.S. institutions of higher education. The long-term goal of this study is to support the development of policies, protocols, trainings, and interventions to strengthen trauma-informed responses to sexual assault by campus public safety agencies in partnership with campus health and wellness centers, as well as with local partners, i.e., law enforcement agencies and health and victim service providers.
To achieve this goal, NORC researchers are collecting nationally representative surveys and local qualitative data on campuses’ public safety and health center approaches to sexual assault within the college or university community. This is a much needed, first-of-its-kind study. With this research, experts will ascertain the state of campus preparedness and campus responses to sexual assaults.
This research is designed to identify promising approaches and service gaps and to translate and disseminate this data for practitioners. In addition to scholarly publications, IACLEA and the ACHA will disseminate study results and recommendations through established and dedicated communication channels. Further, IACLEA and ACHA will use the project results to refine best practice guidelines and accreditation standards.
Please respond to this useful survey, if your agency is selected to participate.
