New Stat On Campus Rapes?

This is a story from the New York Daily News about college rape statistics.

The most frequently mentioned number is 20% of all women on campus are victims of college rape. “The figure suggests that bastions of higher learning are dangerous places akin to war zones.”

The author mentions the research behind the statistic suggests confidence in its accuracy is very low because a Web survey of students at just two schools indicated that unwanted kisses and gropes counted as assaults.

“A new Department of Justice report puts the number of college sexual assault and rape victims at six per 1,000 students — a rate lower than the frequency of victimization of nonstudents between 18 and 24 years old.”

According to the story federal law requires colleges and universities to establish procedures for investigating rape and assault complaints and for disciplining victimizers. Another law specifically bars schools from reporting attacks to police leaving that choice with students.

“But university tribunals have often failed to properly conduct inquiries best left to trained investigators, or to protect rights of the accused.”
