UNIVERSITIES Have ‘Definitional Problem’ When It Comes to Sexual Assault

Expert Carrie Lukas says college crime reports are difficult to examine due to differing definitions of rape, sexual assault. Most university reports adhere to the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics’ definition of rape, however, there are instances of administrations making revisions. These divergences and the subjectivity of the term “consent” can be misleading to the public. “We have to prioritize what is preventable and punishable. That means having an actual justice system responsible for investigating and prosecuting cases, and teaching young men and women to take more responsibility and take action that helps avoid bad outcomes.”
