What's the story behind Campus Confidential?

Campus sexual assault is largely due to students misunderstanding consent and not being held accountable by their peers. Bystanders want to intervene but have a difficult time recognizing appropriate moments and tactics. Students fear social ramifications of intervening. Campuses need local statistics in order to improve prevention.

What is Campus Confidential?

  • A platform to discuss campus attitudes and incidents of violence and consent.
  • Responsive app that runs on web and mobile.
  • The conversations gradually change campus culture surrounding consent and bystander intervention.
  • Collects data not only on sexual assault but also related behavior that can be used to target prevention.
  • Discussion is moderated by campus advocacy groups.
  • Students return to the site because they want to see what others are saying about them and their community.
