"This study investigated whether students at a large, public university were receiving sexual assault resource information, whether the information was informative, and whether it was successful in dispelling commonly held rape myths. Findings suggest that students may not be receiving sexual assault information even though it was available on campus. If students reported receiving sexual assault information, they did not report much knowledge about its contents. In addition, knowledge of resources was not indicative of a lowered belief in rape myths. However, female students were less likely to believe in rape myths compared to male students. Students recommended innovative ways the university could disseminate information and these suggestions are discussed."
