ABSTRACT

Annual Report on Sexual Harassment and Violence at the Military Service Academies: Academic Program Year 2015-2016   [open pdf - 5MB]

"The Military Service Academies (United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy, and United States Air Force Academy) continue to make clear and demonstrable progress in supporting cadets and midshipmen who report sexual assault and sexual harassment. Each academy provided substantial evidence that victim response, healthcare, investigative, and military justice resources work well in response to sexual assault. [...] The survey conducted this year with cadets and midshipmen indicates that efforts to improve sexual harassment prevention and to promote example setting by cadet and midshipman leaders may prove helpful in decreasing the occurrence of sexual assault. In addition, more work must be done to help cadets and midshipmen recognize situations at risk for sexual assault. Data indicates that when cadets and midshipmen identify these situations, the vast majority of them take some kind of action to defuse the situation. Survey results further indicate that better recognition of risky situations and subsequent intervention may reduce sexual assault by up to one third."
