Preventing Sexual Assault on Campus Through Situational Prevention


Prevention practitioners are looking for ways to expand prevention to the community level of the social ecological model. One way to do that is through exploring and implementing situational prevention strategies. A new report, available to download on our website, provides prevention practitioners a framework for situational prevention in practice on college campuses.


Enhancing Campus Sexual Assault Prevention Efforts Through Situational Interventions explores theories, methodology, and examples of situational prevention efforts to reduce sexual violence on college campuses. Situational prevention looks at environments, both physical and social, that contribute to or protect against violence, and then uses a combination of public health, criminology, and social justice frameworks to alter those environments for sexual violence prevention.
