New Report Shows That IU Is Near The Top For Cases Of Sexual Assault

Many students are heading back to college and for some it could be a dangerous place to be.

Recent reports in media outlets like ProPublica and the Washington Post have pointed out that Indiana University ranks among the top ten college campuses nationwide with the most reports of alleged sexual assault incidents.

Those figures relied heavily on information and statistics that universities are required to turn over to the U.S. Department of Education.

IU reported 54 alleged acts of forcible sexual assault between 2010 and 2012.

Observers say that those numbers don’t reflect the countless number of sexual assaults that go unreported.

School officials say that they are increasing efforts to reduce these incidents and make sure that students report these incidents so that they can be addressed.
