Prevalence and Case Characteristics of Drug-Facilitated, Incapacitated, and Forcible Rape among College Students and Other Young Women in the United States, 2006

This study was recently added to the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) database.  The study seeks to identify the number of women in the United States and in college settings raped or sexually assaulted during their lifetime and within the past year; to identify key case characteristics of drug-facilitated and forcible rapes; to examine factors affecting the willingness of women to report rape to law enforcement and seek help from support networks; and to make comparisons between different types of rape.

The data were derived from a national telephone household sample of 3001 American women and the college population data consisted of a sample of 2000 college women.

The ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) database provides search and browsing access to abstracts and datasets in the world's largest archive of computerized social science data.  Search or browse title of study, principal investigator. words in abstracts, or study number.  It is possible to browse major research categories.

Auburn University Urban Studio Digital Collection

These posters  are the work of students of the Urban Studio, an outreach program of Auburn University's College of Architecture, Design and Construction.  Each poster is a graphic "snapshot" of an Alabama community's Small Town Design Initiative.

Distributed to every household in the community and displayed at the post office and city hall and in churches, schools and storefronts, the posters provide a tool for building constituent support, recruiting, and promoting the community, and reminding everyone of their town's assets, opportunities and economic strategies for advancement. 

The posters become support material for grant requests, partnership building and promotion.  A community with a plan is more competitive, and the poster allows the community to easily and effectively communicate their town's potential.

See this link for access to this resource.
