Nearly 1 in every 5 women and 1 in every 16 men will experience sexual assault by the end of their collegiate career. While many researchers have theorized that this result is due to drinking culture, athletics, and Greek life, I believe there is a deeper issue at hand. This observational study is designed to examine the relationship, if any, between higher learning institutions and the rate of sexual assaults on those campuses. This study looks at the largest state institutions in each state in the United States and compared their rate of sexual assault in the year 2014 along with three independent variables: consent, Title IX education meeting, and language used when discussing sexual assault. I anticipate that each of these variables under specified conditions will have a negative effect on the rate of sexual assault. This paper concludes with an examination of a multiple regression result and proposals for policy change to help lower rates of sexual assault on college campuses.
