Sexual assault facts

  • If you are sexually assaulted, you are not to blame, regardless of the circumstances.
  • If someone has unwanted sexual contact with you without your consent, this is sexual assault, which is a crime.
  • About 90% of sexual assaults on campus involve survivors and perpetrators who knew each other (Fisher, et al, 2000).
  • Approximately 50% of reported cases of sexual assault involve alcohol consumption by the survivor, the perpetrator or both (Abbey, et al, 2001).
  • Many rapists attack more than once—one unreported assault may allow one or more additional rapes to occur (Lisak, et al, 2002).
