More Sexual Assaults Reported On Minnesota College Campuses [AUDIO]

Steven Wright

ST. CLOUD – Observers say a rise in reports of sexual assaults on Minnesota college campuses is, in part, the result of improvements in how police and the schools handle the crime.

Lee LaDue is the Coordinator of the Gender Violence Prevention Program at the St. Cloud State University Women’s Center.  She says the number of reported assaults are the wrong thing to focus on.

LaDue says the reported number is a very under represented number of the actual sexual assaults happening on campuses.

The data supplied by the federal Clery Act, which requires campuses to disclose crime statistics, shows the number of reported sexual offenses rose from 115 in 2008 to 141 in 2012 across Minnesota.
