Perceptions of Sexual Assault: Differences in Gender
Gabrielle Sparks, Connor Heck
Sexual assault and rape are issues many college-aged students experience or see on American campuses. This study explores the perceptions and definitions of sexual assaults on college campuses and how they can differ between different factors. The independent variables in the study are gender, race, major, and age. The main independent variable being studied is gender, and how college students' perception of it change depending on this variable. The data being used in this study comes from a quantitative, online survey called the College Students Experiences Survey and it was collected using a convenience sampling technique. The final sample included 299 respondents from colleges all across the United States.
