    Sexual assault survivors experience a reduced income of hundreds of thousands of dollars over their lifetime—resulting from career plan changes, persistent health issues, and more. Join Cornell University Social Statistics lecturer Liz Karns, MPH, JD, to learn more about a side of sexual assault that is rarely discussed: the economics. From interrupted classes to lifetime health impacts each of the costs are added up, using standard legal methods, and assessed to understand the total costs. Karns will draw on her background in statistics and as lawyer representing sexual assault victims as they seek acknowledgment of their injuries. Focus on evidence from the courtroom and social sciences that allows an understanding of the real costs that should be accounted for by perpetrators.

  13. Assessing Higher Education: Sexual Assault Reporting »

    Tuesday Apr 4

    5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

    One in four college females and one in sixteen college males were sexually assaulted according to studies conducted from 1987 to the present. The majority of the assaults happen while in college. The institutional response to the assault is likely to be key for the victim's recovery and educational goals. Under federal law, institutions of higher education are required to report the number of sexual assault complaints they have received from students. An examination of the reporting rate and the gap between official reports and anonymous surveys of college students is the start of identifying the gap between the student experience and institutional barriers to reporting. Several new measures are proposed and evaluated as outcome points in assessing overall barriers to reporting at the institutional level. A presentation of the outcome measures and institutional responses to heightened scrutiny will be presented.
