A recent review of campus responses to sexual violence showed that the number of colleges and universities who reported providing on-campus counseling for victims had increased by 16% since 2002; 55% of schools reported providing on-campus victim advocates; and just over two-thirds (76%) of schools identified off-campus resources for sexual assault victims so that they may seek services when campus resources are unavailable or not preferred.

The Grants to Reduce Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking on Campus Program (Campus Program) is designed to encourage institutions of higher education to adopt a comprehensive, community coordinated response (CCR) to sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
Campuses address these crimes by developing campus- and community-based responses, which include:
- Campus victim services;
- Campus law enforcement;
- Health services;
- Mandatory education of incoming students; and
- Links to local criminal justice agencies and service providers.
