Abstract

Intimate partner violence (IPV) has become an increasingly important issue, but little research has been conducted regarding military college samples. The majority of previous studies have focused on other factors related to IPV including gender, ethnicity, and alcohol-usage. This study sought to examine the prevalence of IPV in both military and civilian (non-military) samples within a college environment. Results found that a relationship existed between IPV and gender, as females were much more likely to engage in IPV than males. Ethnicity was not found to be significant. Military status was unable to be examined due to a small sample size.
