SVPA Scoring System

The SVPA Scoring System is the only national bench-marking index for campus sexual violence. By assessing policies, programs, and procedures, the SVPA Score provides transparency and standardization for campus sexual violence practices. The SVPA Scores are published publically and include the overall score as well as ten sub-scores for particular focus areas. This increases transparency, standardization, and accountability, thereby empowering prospective and active students, staff, and donors to make informed decisions.  The SVPA Scores will soon be a factor included in ranking and comparison programs such as USNews and Niche. As the only national standard for campus sexual violence, the SVPA Score is a valuable tool for ensuring campus sexual violence prevention.

"Sexual violence is pervasive in every country, every community, and every culture. It is systemically embedded in society. Yet, it is not inevitable.  Sexual violence can and will be prevented."
