Dr. Doan was interviewed by the Huffington Post about a grant to study college sexual assault policies. Here's an excerpt from the article, "These Researchers Are Trying To Take The Guesswork Out Of Combating Sexual Assault":

Through the Heartland Sexual Assault Policies & Prevention on Campuses Project, "researchers will be taking inventory and assessing the scope of the problem and the unique factors on each campus, said Alesha Doan, the principal investigator on the KU project."
