"The sexual climate on college campus has been identified as nothing less than treacherous for women. [ Gosselin, Denise Kindschi, 2000 ]"  That was close to fourteen years ago.  Have things changes? What happens when there is an 'incident' involving a sexual assault on campus.  What is sexual assault, anyway?  Do men and women have the same understanding of what 'rape' is?  Are athletes given preferencial treatment if they are accused of sexual wrongdoing on campus?  

In a survey of 3,187 college women, 478 reported having been raped [ Copeland & Wolfe, 1995 ] . . . these stats come from the books that were used when Michelle was working toward her Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice.  Has there been any change?  This coming Monday, Michelle tackles the tough topic of 'rape on campus' with a special co-host.  She will also segue into the issue that many PSU Alum care about, and that is whether the late Joe Paterno, a beloved coach at Penn State University did enough to mitigate and prevent sexual abuse of children.

Join in the conversation, or just listen as Michelle talks about social issues in sports, this coming Monday.
