Survey Reveals Sexual Assault on UofA Fayetteville Campus Pervasive

Feb 7, 2018

Kristen Jozkowski, an Associate Professor of Public Health in the College of Education and Health Professions at the University of Arkansas, conducted an anonymous on-line survey last year to learn how many enrolled U of A students have experienced sexual assault. After sorting out false reports, Jozkowski discovered more than one-third of female students say they've been subjected to forced sexual contact on or near campus. She presented the survey results last month to the Arkansas Legislative Council Higher Education Subcommittee, which requested the data. The inquiry is being lead, in part, by State Rep. Greg Leding, D-Fayetteville, who plans to take measures.
