Charlene Senn, Innovative Researcher
Dr. Charlene Senn’s landmark research was published in the prestigious research journal New England Journal of Medicine. Over more than 10 years, she had developed and evaluated a sexual assault resistance education program (EAAA) for first-year University women. The efficacy of this intervention demonstrated a 50% reduction in the incidence of completed rape for women who took the training. EAAA is being implemented across campuses across North America. Dr. Senn is also the co-founder of the UWindsor Bystander Initiative which embeds bystander-focused sexual assault prevention and training into the academic curriculum.
