In the news: Edmonds Community College is one of the latest to report a sexual assault near its campus. According to Q13Fox, four males assaulted a student in a park. Although this occurred in Washington, it’s not the only case involving a student. ABC13 reported a sexual assault against a female student at Rice University in Texas.
Just this week, results from a nine-school pilot, reviewed by the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), U.S. Department of Justice, was released. The pilot, the Campus Climate Survey Validation Study Final Technical Report, found that among other data 21 percent of the females who responded (cross-school average) reported being sexually assaulted since entering college.
Just nine schools, what about the rest? Imagine the number of students who do not report…
