Abstract

Purpose
The purpose of this study was to examine sexual violence (SV) experiences, reporting and perceptions of campus response among gender and sexual minoritized (GSM) men and their cis/heterosexual counterparts.

Methods
Data come from 904 men, including 113 (12.5%) GSM men, who participated in a campus climate study implemented in 2018.

Results
Findings show a greater proportion of GSM men, relative to their counterparts, experience victimization both prior to and after attending university, as well as differences in characteristics of those who perpetrated against them and contexts of victimization.

Discussion
GSM men are vulnerable to SV, and social work must be attuned to the needs of different campus populations.

Conclusion
Using campus climate studies to assess SV-related outcomes is an important area where institutions of higher education, as well as those researchers and practitioners who utilize the data, can commit to understanding this public health issue among traditionally unrepresented students.
