A Program on Preventing Sexual Assault Directed toward Greek Leaders.
Baker, Tamara; Boyd, Cynthia
This paper discusses a program that uses the leadership and status of Greek system officers to prevent sexual assault at a large university. This program aims to prevent future assaults by altering the conditions of a rape-prone culture. The presentation comprises a definition and two examples of acquaintance rape situations, a discussion of conditions that foster a rape-prone culture, examination of personal attitudes and values about sexual assault, and specific suggestions for changing the conditions in Greek organizations and on campus that foster such a rape-prone culture. Greek leaders and college administrators in attendance provide positive feedback. The prevention program is now being offered by the student group that deals with sexual assault issues and education, in addition to its usual safety-oriented programs. (Contains 11 references.)
