Sexual Assault on College Campuses
1 in 4 women are victims of sexual assault on college campuses during their undergraduate.
43.3 percent of students reported they had witnessed a drunken person heading for a sexual encounter.
25.6 percent of witnesses who did nothing said they did so because they were not sure what to do.
75.7 percent of bystanders indicated they did nothing about the situation.
63.3 percent of respondents believed their campus officials would take their report of sexual assault or sexual misconduct seriously.
50 percent of victims of even the most serious incidents (i.e. forced penetration) said they do not report the event because they do not consider it "serious enough".
95% of sexual assault attacks on college campuses go unreported.
Break the silence.
Courage Starts with You
Courage means telling someone and reaching out for help.
Courage means accepting that assaults do happen on campus and taking the steps to address it and combat it.
Courage means looking beyond traditional victim interview techniques to recognize how and why victims of assault may act differently than victims of other crimes
