AJSAC Fact Sheet on Sexual Violence Committed Against University of Alaska Students, by Gender

The most recent issue of the AJSAC Fact Sheet, "Sexual Violence Committed Against University of Alaska Students, by Gender," presents past year estimates of sexual misconduct and sexual assault victimization against University of Alaska (UA) students both on and off campus. Women- and men-specific estimates are provided for the UA system as a whole only. The results presented here are based on the survey responses of a randomly selected sample of 1,982 undergraduate and graduate students who were enrolled at any of the three UA major administrative units (MAUs) — UA Anchorage (UAA), UA Fairbanks (UAF), or UA Southeast (UAS) during spring semester 2016. The fact sheet is by Lindsey Blumenstein of the UAA Justice Center and Brad A. Myrstol of the Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center (AJSAC).
