90% of college women who've been raped know their assailant

Rapist Hiding in the Bushes? Probably Not

Although the stereotype of a sexual assault is of a stranger attacking a woman in the dark, statistics show that this is actually rare. Most victims of sexual assault know their attacker as an acquaintance, friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, relative, or teacher.

If someone you know has assaulted you, remember:
  • It was not your fault.
  • You are not alone.
  • You have resources on campus to help you - the SHARE advocates, the Health and Counseling Center, and the clergy.
