New data released on alcohol and drug use, sexual violence and sexual harassment at Stanford

Stanford has released new data about sexual violence, sexual harassment, and alcohol and drug use among its student population. The information was gleaned from three sources: a campus survey on drug and alcohol use, the report from the Alcohol Solutions Group (ASG) and the Association of American Universities’ (AAU) 2019 Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Misconduct.
