MANAGING POTENTIAL RISKS IN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES 2
Because college and university athletes have access to many hookup opportunities,
they sometimes find themselves in hookup situations that resemble a sexual assault (Wade,
2017). One of this hookup culture's expectations is that some college and university athletes
or even coaches will get other athletes drunk before they can have sex with them. They may
also be forceful, sexually persistent, or they may pull them to secluded parts and quickly have
intercourse with them. This hookup culture puts high-status students, such as athletes, at the
risk of being involved in violent sexual behavior. In essence, the culture of sex that currently
dominates most colleges is status-based (Wade, 2017).
One of the strategies colleges and universities can use to prevent sexual violence in
athletic teams is to initiate a culture change (NCAA, 2016). This initiative requires strong
leadership from the highest levels. Additionally, athletics directors should be consistent and
clear in stressing to the athletics staff and student-athletes the importance of committing to
sexual violence prevention policies. Such a commitment should be reinforced through
departmental policies and statements, student-athletes conduct, staff expectations, resource
allocation, personal language, and behavior. Furthermore, athletic directors lead the positive
cultural change ensuring that they assign competent and dedicated staff to manage, develop,
evaluate, and implement program strategies (NCAA, 2016).
Ensuring compliance with institutional policies is another strategy that universities
and colleges can use to prevent sexual assault (NCAA, 2016). In most cases, institutional
compliance is not negotiable. Emphasizing compliance with institutional policies will
facilitate the development of behaviors that promote a culture or environment that fosters the
safety and wellbeing of all students. When student-athletes and athletics staff embraces the
responsibilities for preventing sexual violence, they become agents of positive cultural
changes. The fight against sexual assault in athletics teams and staff also requires
organizational-wide collaborations (NCAA, 2016).
