Studies show that one in five women experience attempted or completed sexual assault during her college years

In a more recent study of 9 colleges, Krebs et al. found the prevalence rate for completed sexual assault (as defined above) experienced by undergraduate women was 10.3%, and the prevalence rate for completed rape among undergraduate women was 4.1%. For men, the study showed 3.1% experienced completed sexual assault and 0.8% experienced rape (Krebs, et al., 2016). To address this problem, in 2014, the White House established the Task Force to Protect Students From Sexual Assault. The Task Force had a mandate to strengthen federal enforcement efforts and provide schools with additional tools to help prevent sexual violence on their campuses (White House, 2014).
