Sexual assaults up 23 percent at Minnesota colleges


Reports of sexual assault at Minnesota colleges have risen sharply in recent years, lending urgency to a national call to bring down the number of sex offenses that occur on campuses across the country.

Colleges are not required to report sexual assaults that occur near campus, said Clery Center Executive Director Alison Kiss.

Carla Wilson, a graduate student studying social work at the U, is bothered by the constant advice in campus crime alerts. Every alert contains the same safety pointers urging students to keep their valuables hidden, to never walk alone and to avoid being distracted.Often students don't have the choice of walking home with someone, Wilson said. Maybe their friends left them at a party, maybe they wanted to leave the bar before everyone else did, or maybe they did walk with someone and had to go the last block alone.Instead of implying that a crime is the victim's fault, Wilson said, the U should work to make the community safer so students don't have to worry if they have to walk home alone.
