91 Percent of Colleges Report Zero Incidents of Rape
The study was conducted using the data provided to the Department of Education through the Clery Act.
A federal study of Clery Act data showed that the vast majority of colleges reported zero instances of rape in 2014.
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) conducted the study, which was released by the Department of Education.
VP of Government Relations at AAUW Lisa Maatz said the lack of reported incidents shows students don’t feel comfortable enough with their school’s services or processes for handling reports of sexual assault or violence.
The data also showed that schools reporting one type of incident were more likely to report other types of incidents.
Under the Clery Act colleges are required to disclose crime statistics, including sexual assaults, for their campuses in annual reports.
