Overview

The recent shootings at Virginia Tech brought issues surrounding campus violence to the forefront once again. But campuses have always had problems with stalking, sexual harassment, bullying, rape, and robbery, among other things. In fact, the incidence rates of campus violence are quite startling. Between 8 and 15 percent of college women say they have been raped. And battering occurs in up to a third of all couples in dating relationships in the U.S. Fortunately, there are solutions to the problem of campus violence. In Understanding and Preventing Campus Violence, Michele Paludi and a host of experts detail preventive procedures as well as methods to stay safer on campus.
