Although awareness of campus sexual assault is at a historic high, institutional responses to incidents of sexual violence remain widely varied. The Crisis of Campus Sexual Violence provides higher education scholars, administrators, and practitioners with a necessary and more holistic understanding of the challenges that colleges and universities face in implementing adequate and effective sexual assault prevention and response practices. In this volume, a diverse mix of expert contributors provide a critical, nuanced, and timely examination of some of the factors that inhibit effective prevention and response in higher education. Chapter authors take on one of the most troubling aspects of higher education today, bridging theory and practice to offer programmatic interventions and solutions to help institutions address their own competing interests and institutional culture to improve their practices and policies with regard to sexual violence.

"The Crisis of Campus Sexual Violence is a comprehensive, informative analysis of an urgent, seemingly intractable problem on a broad range of U.S. colleges and universities. Wooten and Mitchell's groundbreaking anthology makes a major contribution to the scholarship on combating and preventing sexual violence in the American academy. A must-read for campuses committed to eliminating this disturbing crisis and engaging in lasting institutional change."

--Beverly Guy-Sheftall, Founding Director of the Women's Research and Resource Center and Anna Julia Professor of Women's Studies, Spelman College, USA

"I want to commend the editors and chapter contributors of this extremely important and groundbreaking work. [They] engage the reader in a much-needed, vital interrogation of higher education with a focus on the transformation of campuses as spaces where sexual violence is not accepted as inevitable... I am impressed by the breadth and depth of this book which not only provides nuanced perspectives on the crisis of campus sexual violence, but also provides voice for many silenced in the past and support to those who are currently silenced."

--From the foreword by Caroline S. Turner, Immediate Past President of the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE), Professor, and Graduate Coordinator for the Doctorate in Educational Leadership Program, California State University, Sacramento
