Grant awarded to Dr. Lepage and Dr. Blumenstein to conduct survey about attitudes in Alaska toward sexual assault and domestic violence

Dr. Cory R. Lepage and Dr. Lindsey Blumenstein, Justice faculty, were recently awarded a grant by the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (CDVSA) to conduct a statewide survey to obtain valid and reliable estimates of knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about sexual assault and domestic violence.

This Knowledge, Attitudes, and Beliefs (KAB) Survey will be sent to adult men and women in Alaska. Surveys are in the process of being mailed out, and respondents will also have the option of filling out the survey online. A final report on the data collected from the survey will be submitted to CDVSA later this spring.
