Abstract or Introduction
Sexual assault has become prevalent among members of the university community. This has prompted researchers to critically examine risk factors that propel the prevalence of sexual assault in the university community. Arrays of factors generally lead to the prevalence of sexual assault, but alcohol consumption has remained the leading factor. This study provided a systematic response to the question of if alcohol has any connection with sexual assaults at Sheffield University. The primary aim of the research critically established that alcohol consumption is a leading factor in sexual assault in the university community.
The study implemented both quantitative method and qualitative methods. Data were collated from students and academic and non-academic members of the university community. A total of 150 persons participated in the study, wherein 67% were female participants, 30% were male participants and 3% were non-gender specified participants. The findings of the study, which emanate from the collated and presented data, provide insight into the nature of alcohol consumption among people at the University of Sheffield.
