Stalking is a serious, prevalent, and dangerous issue that impacts every campus in the United States; is a violation of student conduct codes and Title IX; and is a crime under the laws of the 50 states, District of Columbia, U.S. Territories, and Federal government. Individuals 18-24 years old experience the highest rates of stalking (among adults) and many college stalking victims disclose to their friends before talking to anyone else. This provides a unique opportunity for universities to increase awareness around stalking and support victims.
