Affirmative Consent Policy Types

Our sample study includes 513 Colleges and Universities across the country.

The breakout of school policies looks like this:

Affirmative Consent Policy    40
No Affirmative Consent Reference   60
Reference to Consent    99
Reference to Effective Consent    14
State Mandated Strong Consent Policy    23
Strong Consent Policy (No State Mandate)    277

The methodology is as  follows:

No Affirmative Consent Policy: The school does not provide a definition, or does not mention at all consent within its sexual misconduct policy.

Reference to Consent: The school references consent, effective consent, or informed consent but does not go into detail describing what the boundaries of consent are.

Strong Consent Policy:  The school has a clear and expansive policy on consent including a definition, boundaries of consent, and examples of situations.  It is clear the institution made an effort to actively put in place a strong policy.

Affirmative Consent Policy: The school, or even statewide school system, has adopted a strict and clearly worded affirmative consent policy in regards to sexual consent and conduct.  This includes providing definitions that conclude that consent must be actively present, continual, conscious and voluntary.
