This timely book shows how the rapidly increasing phenomenon of violence in the U.S. is invading college and university campuses. Campus Violence shows what colleges, universities, and other schools can do to deconstruct the violence culture and begin to educate for a better society. The chapters assist educators in determining the nature of both external and internal violence and what to do about it. Readers will benefit from the experiences of many institutions of higher learning as communicated by various outstanding contributors to this book. By becoming sharply aware of the issues and solutions, administrators may engage in better, more realistic long-range planning, as well as get help for the myriad daily questions and problems inherent to running today’s campuses. As a whole, the book is devoted to highlighting important kinds, causes, and cures of violence destructive to living and learning opportunities. The contributors address the full range of issues from conceptualization to practical ways of handling violent behaviors. Section I: Addresses the broadest, most far-reaching views of campus violence: the conceptualization of campus violence, administration perspectives, the destructive concoction of alcohol and other drugs and morbidity, and the commercial promotion of mindless violence. Section II: Addresses specific kinds of violence. Section III: Focuses on the most frequent immediate perpetrators--male college students--and how their behavior can be dealt with and improved. Section IV: Focuses very specifically on how the college counselor or psychotherapist can be a consultant to staff and faculty in regard to disruptive students. Campus Violence depicts the need to nurture and develop atmospheres for learning, respect, and constructive action--arguably the most pressing topic in education today. Counselors, therapists, security officers, deans, and presidents can begin to counter the rapidly increasing phenomenon of violence in American colleges and universities and cultivate a positive leadership atmosphere. The implications of the contributing authors reach to the primary and secondary schools in our nation--the training grounds for college life and education--and provoke some questions which begin to create a better learning environment.

This updated and expanded new edition continues the theme of the second edition that presents a framework by which the reader can gain a broader and deeper understanding of the issues involved with campus violence incidents. In order to understand the current state of campus violence, two sources of information must be considered—the factual and the theoretical. The editors of this book bring together a powerful team of practitioners and scholars from across multiple disciplines to discuss the critical elements associated with campus violence. With the rise of public protest and civil unrest, this book provides a detailed examination of prevention, intervention, and long-term responses to campus violence. Divided into four parts, Part I guides the reader in understanding violence and how it impacts college campuses. Facts, theories, institutional culture, and threats of violence are included. Part II explores how campuses can invest in human infrastructure, prevention, policies, safety strategies, intervention, and response efforts to make campuses safer. Part III covers the ways in which college violence occurs within the context of the law, alcohol, social media, and speakers, including speech and protest. Part IV discusses the specific strains of gender-based violence, suicide, hate crimes, hateful violence, cyberbullying, hazing, kinetic insider violence, and mass shootings. High profile cases provide many examples of catalyst events that changed the paths for institutions of higher education. This user-friendly resource provides college personnel, students, and parents with directed, well-researched strategies to prepare for the possibility of tragedy before it strikes. This unique text will be a valuable tool for college administrators, journalists, psychologists, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys.

Violence, hate crimes, theft, drug possession, sexual harassment, concealed weapons, underage drinking, rape - along with many other major and minor offenses - plague all campuses. College and university staff, administrators and policy makers are under increasing parental and legislative pressure to demonstrate they have adopted measures to prevent crime and keep students safe. This book serves as a sourcebook to enhance and evaluate safety programs, generate new solutions and interventions, comply with new legislation, and present practical steps and guidelines to establish best practices. This book pays particular attention to the factors that may give rise to crime. It considers high-risk drinking and examines the intersection between hate crimes and violence. It devotes chapters to discrimination in all its forms - whether against international students, students of color, or on the basis of ethnicity or sexual orientation. It reviews the range of issues relating to harassment and violence against women and engages with hazing and the presence of guns on campus. The authors pay attention to the different circumstances that may apply in specific institutional types, such as community colleges and minority-serving institutions. The book offers perspectives from administrators, campus security, student affairs personnel, faculty and policy makers as well as a review of legal considerations. The purpose is to provide readers with the context and tools to devise a comprehensive safety plan. For administrators operating with few formal support systems, advice is given on how to co-opt individuals and resources from around the campus to assist in the common goal of maintaining a safe and welcoming campus.

In "Violence and Security on Campus: From Preschool through College" two expert authors take an evidence-based look at this important issue, dispelling myths and misconceptions about the problem and offering appropriate responses to it. Their book examines patterns, trends, correlations, and causes of violence, crime, and disorder in diverse educational settings, from elementary schools through colleges and universities. It reviews data and research evidence related to forms of violence, from bullying to murder, and it explores the varied security concerns that confront schools of different levels. In addition to describing the nature and extent of the school violence problem, which is often divergent from media reports, the authors point to other security issues that need to be considered and addressed by administrators and security personnel. Finally, they assess a variety of policy responses and security solutions--some popular yet ineffective, some challenging yet promising--offering advice that will enhance the security of any institution of learning.

Men have a responsibility to prevent rape. Research on the causes of campus rape and sexual assault indicate that it is the experience of masculinity itself - how men think of themselves as men - that creates the psychological and cultural environment that leads us to rape; and that this environment is perpetuated in men's relationships with and expectations of each other. To be effective, rape prevention work with men must therefore focus on men's experience. This pioneering volume of New Directions for Student Services provides resources for professionals in higher education who want to work with men to reduce the incidence of sexual assault and rape on campus. Extensive guidelines are provided for the development and implementation of a model rape prevention program for men, including student perspectives on facilitating such a program. Student personnel administrators interested in working with men to prevent rape and sexual assault will benefit from the theory, research, treatment models, innovative programming, student perspectives, and resources reviewed in this volume.

While sexual violence has been present and prevalent on campus for decades, the work of recent college student activists has made it an issue of major societal and institutional concern. This book makes an important contribution to and provides a foundation for better contextualizing and understanding sexual violence. Each chapter in this edited volume focuses on populations that are not often centered in the discourse of campus sexual violence and accounts for individuals' intersecting identities and how they interlock with larger systems of domination. Challenging dominant ideologies concerning assumptions of white women as the only victims-survivors, the racialization of aggressors, and the deleterious rape myths present in both research and practice, this book draws attention to the complexities of sexual violence on the college campus by highlighting populations that are frequently invisible in research, reporting, and practice. The book places sexual violence on campus in a historical context, centering the experiences of populations relegated to the margins, and highlighting the relationship between racism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of domination to sexual violence. The final chapters of the book explore how critical models of intervention and prevention and a critical analysis of existing institutional policies may be implemented across college campuses to better address sexual violence for multiple populations and identities in higher education. This book will expand educators’ understanding of sexual violence to inform more effective policies, procedures, practice, and research that reaches beyond preventing sexual violence and addresses the dominant systems from which sexual violence stems, in an attempt to eradicate, not just prevent, the act and the issue.
