Abstract: The Office of Women's Health is seeking an approval by OMB on a new information collection, Cross-Site Evaluation on the Women's Health College Sexual Assault. The purpose of this data collection is to gather qualitative data across the nine grantee organizations and partners via interviews to gain a full understanding of grantee and partner perceived success over the course of the three-year project; grantee and partner experiences with the initiative; barriers and facilitators to project implementation; sustainability of grantee efforts; and anecdotal or other evidence of reductions in campus sexual violence. Interviews conducted with individuals representing the grantee organizations and campus partners, and will occur once per respondent in the spring of 2019.

The CDC estimates that 23 million women have experienced completed or attempted rape in their lifetimes. (National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss6308a1.htm ). A September 2015 Association of American Universities (AAU) survey of 150,000 students across 27 colleges and universities indicated that 23% of female undergraduate students reported experiencing sexual assault since enrolling in college (AAU Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct, https://www.aau.edu/sites/default/files/%40%20Files/Climate%20Survey/Executive%20Summary%2012-14-15.pdf ).

The College Sexual Assault Policy, and Prevention Initiative of the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Women's Health, has three main goals: (1) Disseminate sexual assault policy and prevention information to organizations in a position to influence and implement policies and practices at post-secondary schools; (2) provide technical assistance to post-secondary schools to establish policies and practices that prevent sexual assault; and (3) assess the success of policy establishment and sustained prevention strategies enacted by partnering organizations and post-secondary schools.
