Raise awareness of sexual assault on college campuses and reduce the number of attacks with Campus Eye.
Colleges and universities across the country are faced with the growing challenge of keeping America’s youth safe from sexual assault. According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, more than 90% of sexual assault victims on college campuses do not report the incident. Campus Eye provides students with a fast, easy and effective way to submit information to the authorities using technology they use every day. The goal is simple: to dramatically reduce the number of unreported sexual assaults and keep students safer while at college
The Campus Eye reporting system includes both a mobile app and a web-based reporting tool that lets students submit geo-tagged photos and report details to school authorities in less than a minute. Students may report sexual assault or other safety concerns, and they have the option to submit reports anonymously.
School administrators have the option of receiving a push notification and an email when a newly created report arrives. Reports are viewed and managed using the Campus Eye online dashboard. Reports can be forwarded, escalated, shared or commented on as steps are taken to quickly resolve the issue. Reports can also be filtered by different criteria and downloaded as a PDF or CSV document for distribution. An outbound alert feature enables administrators to instantly notify all mobile app users of emergencies, safety concerns or campus-wide events.
In September 2014, President Obama launched the “It’s On Us” initiative to change the way we think about sexual assault on campus. The initiative has increased sexual assault prevention awareness and has given rise to a cultural movement of equality and respect in America. Nevertheless, the facts are still shocking; 1 in 5 women, and 1 in 16 men, are sexually assaulted while in college. Campus Eye raises the awareness of sexual assault on campus, and provides a solution to help reduce these attacks.
“Campus Eye addresses the growing concern over sexual assault on campus. Colleges and universities need a proactive solution that helps reduce sexual assault,” said Campus Eye CEO Rob Sweeney. Campus Eye makes it possible for students to report sexual violence and other safety concerns to school administrators in real-time. And anonymous reporting is a major component to reducing the number of unreported incidents. “We see an enhanced awareness of safety at schools using Campus Eye, along with an increased student participation in reporting concerns, including sexual assault,” said Sweeney.
