This study, although primarily directed at campuses, has important implications for community-based rape crisis centers working with college students or partnering with campuses. Campuses are struggling to meet the needs of student survivors, and rape crisis centers have the expertise to help them improve their on-campus response as well as the ability to offer completely confidential support and advocacy services to students. Additionally, RCCs can play a critical role assisting campuses in sexual assault prevention efforts. Learn more about strategies for working with campuses in our upcoming PreventConnect Campus webinar Comprehensive Prevention on College Campuses.
