Sexual Assault Response Team Research Internship

In 2011, the Oregon legislature passed Senate Bill 557 mandating the creation of Sexual Assault Response Teams (SARTs) in every county in the state of Oregon.  It requires that SARTs develop protocols addressing the response to adult and adolescent sexual assault victims in their county by the end of 2012.

This project will examine the effect of the legislation on community response to sexual assault in Oregon in a number of sites in Oregon. 

  • Reporting rates of sexual assaults to law enforcement
  • Access to advocacy services
  • Victim satisfaction with the system
  • Number of trained & certified SANEs in Oregon
  • Cases referred to the prosecutor
  • Charges filed against perpetrators of sexual assault
  • Successful prosecutions
  • Responder satisfaction with the coordination

The project is a longitudinal study that will collect data at regular intervals over a span of years. This project would be ideal for a student who could stay with the project for a year or longer.

This position would be in charge of development of research design, data collection, and analysis.  The position is unpaid, however, we are able to reimburse mileage.
