Daigle, Leah E.; Johnston, Tricia; Azimi, Andia; Felix, Shanna N. – Journal of School Violence, 2019
The victimization of college students is well documented. Comparative research on the extent of victimization and the risk factors for it is less prevalent. Although some cultural similarities exist, it is possible that American and Canadian college students differ in their experience of victimization. These differences have not been fully…

Navarro, Jordana N.; Clevenger, Shelly – Journal of School Violence, 2017
Most of the research focusing on sexual victimization on college campuses has focused on females as victims. This attention is warranted given that studies have consistently found that females are at more risk of experiencing victimization compared to males. However, a drawback of this emphasis is that laypersons may incorrectly believe that men…
