10% of University’s Female Students Raped

School researchers at the University of Oregon have found that 10 percent of female students surveyed have been raped while attending the school and that the vast majority of those cases were never reported to campus officials. The findings come as the university has faced crticism over its handling of an alleged rape involving three basketball players that preceded the resignation of Michael Gottfredson as university president. University researchers said 35 percent of students—and 14 percent of men—had at least one forcible sexual encounter and about 90 percent of students assaulted never told of the violence.
