This is a study of the sexual violence prevention education programs offered at Clark University. The data analyzed were anonymous feedback forms, evaluation forms, and Pre and Post-Tests. The researcher examined this data, along with literature on the subject of campus assault and violence prevention programs, to understand if Clark's programming (1) creates a set of community expectations, (2) provides students with language and conceptualization tools and (3) influences social norms and intent to intervene in violent situations. The findings indicate that Clark's programs are providing a set of community standards and influencing social norms and intent to intervene in violent situations, but is not significantly providing students with language or conceptualization tools. From these findings the researcher provides recommendations to strengthen Clark's future programming.
