In 2020, researchers from the Justice and Gender-Based Violence Research Initiative at the Wellesley Centers for Women presented gave a presentation to the U.S. Department of Justice, Campus Sexual Assault and Interagency Working Group. The presentation summarized a study funded by the National Institute of Justice, Responding to Sexual Assault on Campus: A National Assessment and Systematic Classification of the Scope and Challenges for Investigation and Adjudication.

The PowerPoint slides from the presentation review the problem of sexual assault on campus, Title IX requirements, and why schools handle reports of sexual assault on their campuses. The slides also review the methodology and key findings from the study. The slides highlight the importance of posting accurate, up-to-date information about sexual assault resources on a college or university website and offer recommendations on website best practices.
