“Shelving Justice: Understanding the Problem of Untested Sexual Assault Kits (SAKs)”
Dr. Rebecca Campbell is a Professor of Psychology and Presidential Advisor on Relationship Violence & Sexual Misconduct at Michigan State University. Dr. Campbell’s research examines sexual assault survivors’ disclosure and help-seeking experiences, and how contact with the legal and medical systems affects survivors’ psychological and physical health. Her research has been funded by National Institute of Justice, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She was the lead researcher for the National Institute of Justice-funded Detroit Sexual Assault Kit Action Research Project, which was designated as an Exemplary Project by the Association of Public & Land Grant Universities (APLU) and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Most recently, she co-chaired Michigan State University’s efforts to develop a five-year institutional strategic plan to address relationship violence and sexual misconduct. Dr. Campbell also conducts training for law enforcement and multidisciplinary practitioners in civilian, military, and campus community settings on changing institutional responses to gender-based violence.
