Although we have no reason to believe that incidents of sexual assault occur more on this campus than on others, it would be naive of us to think that it does not happen at all. It is difficult to report the number of occurrences because sexual assault, including rape, is a crime that, more often than not, goes unreported. Survivors often do not define what happens to them as assault or they may feel in some way responsible for the incident. Many incidents of sexual assault are committed by people we know, either as an acquaintance or as a friend. The fact that survivors are likely to know the assailant makes it even more difficult to report the crime.
