Campus Rape

What Students Need to Know

Rape by strangers and acquaintances
Most college students who are sexually assaulted are victimized by someone they know. Although stranger rapes occur, acquaintance rape is by far the most prevalent form of sexual violence among college students.

In the "Rape in Amercia" study, 80% of the girls and women who were raped were assaulted by someone they knew.  Similarly, in a report in "Violence Against Women" published by the Department of Justice, 82% of the victims were raped by someone they knew (acquaintance/friend, intimate, relative).
