WHO ARE THE RAPISTS ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES?
Are there a few men on college men who perpetrate most of the rape there? Or are there hordes of men who rape once in a while? When trying to solve the issue of sexual assault on our college campuses, it seems like it would be good to know whether we are dealing with a few serial rapists, or whether a lot of men carry out rape as isolated situations.
One study looked at the information and found out who perpetrators are likely to be, and you may just be surprised.
Jacquelyn W. White, PhD, is a senior research scientist at University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and is an organizer of a national group working to ensure that campus climate surveys of sexual misconduct are rooted in empirically based research. She is co-editor of the forthcoming American Psychological Association Handbook on the Psychology of Women. She has conducted research on gender issues, sexual victimization, and intimate partner violence for over 35 years, and led one of the few longitudinal studies of sexual and physical dating violence among adolescents and college students. Her work has led to information about who rapes and the consequences of campus rape.
