Abstract

We examined the occurrence of stalking victimization among female and male undergraduate students attending three urban colleges. Specifically, we explored the proportion of students who experienced only stalking victimization and the relationship to the perpetrator identified by victims of stalking. Our findings suggest that stalking victimization is less frequently perpetrated by intimate partners and occurs independent of more commonly measured forms of interpersonal victimization. Given recent changes to the Jeanne Clery Act to include stalking victimization as a mandatorily reportable offense, these results provide insight to college administrators responsible for designing violence-related educational efforts, as well as to health care providers who counsel and provide care to college-aged young adults.
