Summary

In 1990, Georgia's DeKalb College initiated a program of date rape prevention (DRP) workshops in response to statistics that show: (1) over 50% of all entering freshmen and 55% of all women are enrolled in community, technical, and junior colleges; and (2) 50% of rape victims will know the perpetrator. The workshop initiative sought to raise consciousness, provide rape prevention information, and foster the use of community and campus resources. Specifically, the workshops were designed to provide students with opportunities to engage in role plays and discussions regarding sexual assault scenarios, incorporating panels of key presenters, staff and student volunteers, and campus protective services officers. Other standard features of the workshops included publicity packets, printed materials from presenters, bibliographies of items on date rape in the college library, and a program evaluation. The majority of respondents to the evaluations indicated that the program was either very helpful or helpful, while suggestions for future workshop topics included more date rape, child abuse, incest, male rape, interracial dating, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, and eating disorders. Both male and female students indicated that they had not been previously aware of the fact that some dating incidents were, in fact, rape. Since 1992, date rape workshops have been included periodically in the college's orientation program and workshop schedule (HAA)
