Consent Communication: What Does it Mean for Student-Athletes?

The Monmouth University Department of Athletics, in conjunction with the MU Polling Institute and other academic departments, developed an instrument to identify the attitudes and perceptions of sexual consent of student-athletes to be used to develop appropriate intervention strategies.  The team implemented an assessment consisting of seven focus groups segmented by gender for athletes, and a mirrored sample of non-athletes, followed by a confidential survey of all athletes and a matched sample of non-athletes. Potential delivery modes for a data based sexual assault prevention strategy were identified.
