Drs. Curt and Christie Brungardt of Jana’s Campaign will be the guest editors of a special issue of the eJournal of Public Affairs focusing on higher education’s role in preventing and responding to gender-based violence. According to the CDC, one in five women are sexually assaulted while in college. It is clear that administrators, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and off-campus advocacy groups must take a more active role in preventing and responding to violence. This special issue is set to be published in June 2015. For the Call of Submissions, please see this link. Date for submissions is March 2, 2015.
