Given that one-in-five women experience sexual assault during college, these figures suggest these institutions are engaging in cover-ups, neglecting victims, or fostering an environment where survivors do not feel safe enough to come forward.
But another way of looking at these investigations is that WSU isn’t handling assault disclosures properly.
Similar to his colleagues at other colleges, he says this doesn’t mean it is occurring more often.
Implementing proactive programs is what is most important in prevention, he says, and may be why the university hasn’t been investigated under Title IX.
Similar to WSU’s Anderson, Whitman College Title IX Coordinator and Associate Dean of Students Julie Dunn explains in an email that the high rate of reported rapes is not a reflection of the crime occurring more frequently at the college, but of more students being willing to disclose the assaults.
“We pride ourselves on creating a campus culture where [sexual assault policy violations] are not tolerated,” wrote Dunn.
“I think we do have a good process, but there is always room for improvement,” says Anderson.
