Survey: Quarter of women at UW-Madison sexually assaulted

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — More than a quarter of University of Wisconsin-Madison undergraduate women who responded to a new survey say they’ve been sexually assaulted.

UW-Madison was one of 33 colleges that participated in the Association of American Universities survey this year.

All the students who took part were given a chance to respond during a six-week period this spring. All told, 7,697 students, or 20% of those enrolled at the university, provided answers.

The survey found that 26.1% of female undergraduate respondents said they’d been sexually assaulted since they entered college. Slightly more than 13% of female graduate students said they’d been sexually assaulted.

The victim or perpetrator had consumed alcohol shortly before 77% of the assaults.
