As the attention surrounding sexual violence on college campuses grows, colleges are feeling increased pressure to address the issue. One such way is gender violence prevention programming, specifically for engaging men. This study is a comparative analysis of three such programs: Mentors in Violence Prevention, Coaching Boys into Men, and A Call to Men. The current study was guided by the research questions: What past scholarship informs current approaches to sexual violence on college campuses, specifically approaches aimed at men? What criteria should be used to evaluate these programs? What guidance can help inform campuses as well as current and future programs? Programs were analyzed based on a synthesis of criteria given from previous research. The results showed that there is room for improvement in the programs currently available nationally to best foster real change on campus. These criteria could be the basis of guidance for programming for men to improve these programs or the development of other programs, both nationally and campus based.
