John D. Foubert, Ph.D. is Principal of John D. Foubert, LLC, National President of One in Four (www.oneinfourusa.org) and an Endowed Professor of Higher Education and Student Affairs at Oklahoma State University.  He earned his undergraduate degree in Psychology and Sociology from the College of William and Mary, his Master’s degree in Psychology from the University of Richmond, and his Ph.D. in College Student Personnel Administration from the University of Maryland at College Park.

Dr. Foubert is an interdisciplinary scholar with over 50 peer-reviewed publications.  Dr. Foubert has written seven books about the prevention of sexual violence and two about managing life in college residence halls.  How Pornography Harms is his 10th book, and the one he hopes will have the broadest appeal to college students, parents, and the public at large.  His federally funded, interdisciplinary research program has produced scholarship that is featured in some of the most respected peer-reviewed journals in both Education and Psychology.  His grant and government contract work exceed $1,000,000.  He was the first scholar to document a reduction in sexual violence resulting from a prevention program.  Dr. Foubert has given over 200 professional presentations to conferences, universities, community and military organizations worldwide.

In 1998, he and a group of colleagues founded One in Four (www.oneinfourusa.org).  One in Four is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending rape through means shown to be most effective through scientific research.  Since 1993, over 100,000 people at countless universities, state health departments, and military organizations have seen Dr. Foubert’s rape-prevention programs worldwide.

Dr. Foubert has testified Congress and has been called upon by the White House and the Pentagon for his expertise in rape prevention.  He speaks at and consults with colleges and the military regularly about the harms of pornography and how to end sexual violence.  He appears in the national media on camera or in print several times a month in outlets such as CNN, The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Houston Chronicle, and U.S. News and World Report.  Dr. Foubert is also a blogger for the Huffington Post.

Due to his religious faith as a follower of Jesus, Dr. Foubert often speaks at Christian colleges and in churches about the harms of pornography, preventing sexual violence, trauma-informed responses to Title IX violations, and PTSD.  He remains in high demand for secular private and public institutions as well.
