Abstract: This report provides an assessment of the Military Service Academies in the areas of prevention and response to sexual harassment and assault, as well as data and analysis on reported cases of involving Academy personnel occurring between June 1, 2011 and May 31, 2012. Results show that in the 12 months prior to the survey, 12.4 percent of women and 2.0 percent of men indicated experiencing unwanted sexual contact, which are statistically no different than the rates of unwanted sexual contact measured in the 2010 Service Academy Gender Relations (SAGR) survey. In the 12 months prior to being surveyed, 51 percent of women and 10 percent of men indicated that they had experienced sexual harassment. Overall, the rate of sexual harassment for academy women has decreased from the 56 percent measured in the 2010 SAGR survey; there was no statistically significant change in the overall rate for academy men. While the number of reports of sexual assault by victims may never equal what is reported on anonymous surveys, the Department of Defense’s dual goals are to use prevention interventions to reduce the number of incidents of sexual assault, and at the same time, encourage reporting of the crime, so that the Restricted and Unrestricted Reports to the Department of Defense account for a greater proportion of the survey-estimated number of victims.
