Transparency and accountability are the keys to creating meaningful, long-term change.
What is the campus accountability
map + tool?
This tool empowers current and prospective students, survivors, and their communities with the ability to view in-depth information on each institution’s sexual assault investigation policies, prevention efforts, and available survivor support resources as well as high-level statistics on definitions, trainings, sanctions and investigations. The map also allows users to compare these metrics between schools and gain a better understanding of what policies look like across the nation through a user-friendly interface.

Here’s what our partners are saying
“This map has been a behind the scenes project of EROC for many years, as we wanted to collect the most accurate, up-to-date information for students, their families, and their communities and compile it in a manner that was easy to access and navigate. Students shouldn’t have to dig for hours to find basic policies and safety data, and while some institutions have greatly improved the availability of such information, many others still have not. I am so thankful for the countless EROC staff and volunteers who have dedicated their time to create and launch this map tool, which in turn, will greatly benefit all students across the country.”
Anne E. Clark
“The Campus Accountability Map + Tool (CAMT) is a one-stop resource for students, parents, researchers, and stakeholders. CAMT is an accessible tool that provides in-depth information on statistics but also current institutional policies. With a focus on marginalized institutions, CAMT is a critical resource to enhance survivor support and improve reporting.”
Brittany Hayes, Ph.D
“We are proud to support End Rape on Campus’ (EROC) new Campus Accountability Map and Tool. School policies addressing Title IX and sex-based harassment have historically been difficult to find and navigate. This resource will make it easier to find and compare information that empowers students, families, and advocates.”
Fatima Goss Graves
“The resources and network provided by the CAMT is a game changer, and I can’t wait to see its positive impacts on the lives of survivors nationwide.”
“The Campus Accountability Map + Tool is an incredible resource to ensure students have easy access to Clery Act-required policies, programs, and data to empower them and to help build safer campuses. We hope this new tool increases transparency and strengthens institutions’ commitment to supporting survivors.”
“The CAMT is a game-changer for students, families, and advocates looking for what is often difficult to find information on institutional websites. The tool not only provides a single-stop location for data, policies, prevention efforts, and available resources but will inevitably encourage schools to step up their sexual violence prevention and response endeavors.”
Jennifer E. Henkle
“I am so happy I found EROC and am able to be a part of the SSC, as well as see and join in the work with the CAMT. In my position as a student and advocate and friend that helps others navigate receiving help or reporting – I never knew that some information was available until I had the proper terms to search for it. I specifically think about the ‘public crime logs’ required by the Clery Act. I never found that in searching sexual assault on my campus until I learned about it in an EROC SSC Meeting – then I knew what to look for. All that to say, I think the CAMT is a wonderful and powerful tool for students, future students, and even staff/faculty on campus.”
“As the Direct Legal Services Manager at Equal Rights Advocates, I’ve seen student survivors face a myriad of challenges when filing Title IX complaints, from navigating unclear campus policies and procedures to student silencing tactics by Respondents in the form of defamation lawsuits and counter-complaints. CAMT is an important digital resource for survivors that allows them to easily access Title IX policies of colleges and universities across the country, providing more clarity and transparency in the process and allowing survivors to access information about sexual assault statistics and survivor support resources.”
“EROC’s CAMT is and will be a great resource for community members, advocates, and students to clearly view data on sexual harm on college campuses. Outside of individual college campuses, it helps us to get a better understanding of a larger culture of how campus safety is codified in institutional policies nationwide.”
“We believe the CAMT created by End Rape on Campus will be an invaluable tool in highlighting sexual assault statistics and reporting mechanisms for college campuses across the nation. By having this tool as a resource, advocates can better support survivors and improve prevention efforts in the long-term.”
“As a student survivor, I am grateful to the EROC Team’s hard work on the Campus Accountability Map + Tool! I graduated from undergrad several years ago, and I wish I’d been able to access a tool that allows students to conveniently access college and university statistics, resources, and policies and systems for reporting in one place. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to volunteer my time and I am looking forward to seeing the impact this powerful, innovative tool has on the upcoming classes of college and university applicants.”
“Myself and SafeBAE are so excited to see this incredible resource for prospective college students and their parents to utilize in college searches. Picking the best, but also the SAFEST campus should be a fundamental right to everyone.”
“The Campus Accountability Map and Tool is a critical resource for student organizers as it lessens the research burden that otherwise arises when they have to collect and analyze policies and data from multiple sources. The availability of the CAMT will create more space for students to do the important work advocating for change and accountability from their institutions.”
“As a technology provider in the space of supporting survivors of sexual assault, the End Rape on Campus CAMT is brilliantly shining a light on colleges and universities nationwide and the resources they have (or do not have) for survivors. The data provided allows individuals to make informed decisions about the safety on campus.”
“Safety is essential in guiding a student’s on-campus experience. Unfortunately, however, harm can still occur. The Campus Accountability Map + Tool developed by End Rape On Campus provides students with the critical information to navigate these already complex decisions in a way that puts their needs and concerns first while illustrating paths to accountability and resources. For students who are also survivors, knowing the stats, parameters, and policies set in place at an institution makes all the difference.”
“We are excited to support the launch of the Campus Accountability Map + Tool (CAMT) as it is a game changer and transformative resource for survivors and parents. For students to have access to a central database that gives you a one-stop shop to learn about the prevention, investigation policies, and post-assault resources helps remove access barriers to critical information. For parents, the CAMT provides a holistic overview of what your child’s school is doing to provide a supportive and welcoming campus environment and what supports are offered in the event that harm happens. Finally, the CAMT provides a rubric by which administrators can measure their prevention education and advocacy services across the United States to best meet survivor needs.”
“Sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking are alarmingly widespread and dangerous problems affecting hundreds of thousands of students at college campuses across the country. As an organization that has spent years working directly with college students to prevent assault on campus and change the culture to be survivor-centered and trauma-informed, we are excited to see EROC’s new CAMT tool that will empower students and parents with the knowledge to make more informed decisions about their higher education. This is an important step towards pushing colleges nationwide to prioritize gender-based violence prevention and continually seek better ways to combat sexual assault on campus.”
One in five college students reports sexual assault, and data tells us many students do not actually report. Despite increased visibility and conversations about consent and harassment, this problem is far too pervasive, traumatizing millions of students each year. Many times in the Torah, people undergoing difficult trials step forward to say “Hineni,” here I am, and it begins a holy journey. The Campus Accountability Map + Tool will empower and enable survivors to say “hineni, I am here and this requires accountability” — and begin the journey, hopefully, into justice, safety and healing.
The Campus Accountability Map + Tool was built from the passion and dedication of many supporters and volunteers. We would like to thank all of those who helped at every stage, from conceptualization to it’s release. Below are some of the names of those who contributed.
