Sexual and Relationship Violence Support Services

College campuses across the nation are facing a serious problem and unfortunately, the numbers do not lie. The issue of power-based personal violence (sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking) is an issue of significant concern on college campuses, including Kent State University. Nationally, women have a one-in-six statistical probability of being sexually assaulted (one in thirty-three for men) and college women are four times as likely to be sexually assaulted as are other women. These statistics are simply unacceptable and we believe we can do better at Kent State University.
