VICTIM ASSISTANCE TEAM STATISTICS

ACADEMIC YEAR 2013-2014

NUMBER OF SURVIVORS SERVED

Increase in survivors requesting services

The Victim Assistance Team has been serving survivors of interpersonal violence at Colorado State University for 40 years. However, recent years have shown a dramatic spike in the number of survivors requesting services, and numbers continue to steadily increase. Staff in the Women and Gender Advocacy Center attribute this increase to a concurrent increase in sexual assault prevention and awareness programming on campus.
