UE analyzed 305 student sexual assault claims reported by higher education institutions from 2011 to 2013. UE's analysis found that colleges and universities respond to some of the most difficult sexual assault cases. These cases often involve little or no forensic evidence, delays in reporting, alcohol use, and differing accounts of consent. This report discusses the key findings of UE's claims study and looks at:
- Perpetrator and victim characteristics
- Circumstances of the assault
- Response from the institution
- Resulting litigation
