Other victims could not get their case heard by the college they were attending, were completely ignored by these institutions, or did not have enough evidence to withstand trial in the criminal justice system (The Hunting Ground, 2015). In addition to that, other victims have experienced various other issues concerning the process after being assaulted. Sexual assault victims are continuously revictimized following their own personal attack. Therefore, the process or the system succeeding a sexual assault needs to be enhanced and improved for victims.
Binge drinking is one of the most problematic behaviors among college students. Research conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health, Saint Joseph’s University and the University of Arizona attributed the increase in rape cases to heavy drinking college environments (College Alcohol Study par. 1). Furthermore, the study found that college women with medium and high-binge drinking rates stood high chances of getting sexual assaulted while intoxicated. Overconsumption of alcohol on university campuses leads to an increase in sexual assaults and implementing mandatory alcohol workshops will reduce the number of cases by exposing incoming freshman to the dangers of alcohol in conjunction with sexual assaults. Sexual assault has been defined
Introduction Throughout history, rhetorical artifacts have assisted the Western culture in addressing issues that can impair a society. Rhetorical critics have examined, how public service rhetorical acts aim to shape an audience’s belief around a “question of value,” by presenting a convincing argument (Campbell, Huxman, Burkholder pg. 49). Lady GaGa’s public service announcement, “Til it Happens to You,” is a contemporary example of a rhetorical act created with the intention to enlighten individuals across the nation about the prevalence of sexual assaults occurring on college campuses. In this essay the music video, “Til it Happens to You,” is identified as a rhetorical act. In the form of a music video, with national and international
Social Norms Theory Intervention (Background) An analysis of Perkins and Berkowitz (1986) showed their approach using social norms theory worked in reducing binge drinking. Social norm theory would suggest that students consume alcohol in college and university in attempts to “fit in” (Perkins & Berkowitz, 1986). Many students have misperceptions on the drinking norms among their peers, but will use this perception to guide their behaviours and attitude towards drinking (Glider et. al, 2001).
School shooting as the reading says, is a big issue in the U.S. I agree that all the exposure of violence on the media is one of the cause of violence in young people. I agree with rehabilitation for juveniles. If we treat people when they are young, they’re more likely to not commit crimes in the future. I disagree when the reading says that social class may influence in people violence acts because Harris was a middle class was involved in school shooting.
In today’s society we continue to hear about the effects of hazing, bullying, and harassment among college students. There are questions as whether there has been an increase in exposure or intensity in the recent years. Although such topics has been a focus of research for years such victimization and the negative consequences that are associated with such behaviors has been receiving more attention from the media and policy makers in the last couple years. For the purpose of this paper, Hazing is defined as the action of hazing; especially: an initiation process involving harassment (Merriam-Webster Dictionary, n.d).
‘College students are increasingly demanding protection from words and ideas they don’t like.’ Is stated in the article The Coddling of the American Mind. The authors Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt use logos, ethos, and pathos to discuss the issues and solutions for trigger warnings and macroaggressions on university campuses. The authors start the article off by giving examples and other pieces of literature written about trigger warnings on college campuses, these are examples of Logos. Logos is used throughout the document for example in the third paragraph the author observed the recent campus actions at Brandeis University.
Event Paper: Dirty Talk Introduction For this event paper, I chose to go see “Dirty Talk” a docudrama performed on the USC campus shed light into the rape culture in higher education institutions by sharing the life stories of individuals. The event provided many different themes related to political differences in higher education, such as gender construction, power, privilege and oppression. In this paper I plan to first discuss my experience of listening to the powerful stories of different individual from across the country, followed by relating my experience to topics that I have listed above and how the event assist me in becoming a better college advisor in the near future.
The topic I am researching is how greek life, parties, and alcohol play a part of rape culture on college campuses. Many of my sources focused on the same issues, and many of them concluded studies showing how Greek life contributes to this modern issue. Factors within this issue is how fraternities and male sports teams are perceived and who is attracted to joining these organizations. The main argument among all of these sources were that parties and alcohol abuse create an environment that can be a breeding ground for this unacceptable type of behavior. My first source, written by Stephen E. Humphrey conducted several tests and surveys with questionnaires using college students as the subjects.
We can also ensure victim’s safety by implementing stronger consequences against those accused of rape. Rape culture is commonly perpetrated by young men on college campuses. In a report published in 2015, it is stated that one in five women have experienced sexual assault while on a college campus (Luna 1). This is because young men are not taught that they do not have a right to women’s bodies. Rape is not spoken about in most American schools because it is considered a “taboo” topic, that in itself is considered rape culture.
The guide this author created discusses the problem of aquaintance rape of college students, addressing it’s scope, causes, and contributing factors. With the information in this guide, it is the authors belief that police and public safety officers can more effectively prevent the
