Breaking the Silence
Wagner, Kathryn Drury
Journal of College Admission, n234 p40-43 Win 2017
When parents of today's students were applying to colleges, they researched factors like location, financial aid, and majors. Physical safety was barely on the radar--it was assumed. A lot has changed since then, and today's prospective students and their parents are savvier about campus safety issues. College-age women are the demographic most likely to be victims of sexual violence, yet 80 percent of college students don't report these incidents. What are colleges doing to address this issue, and what role does campus safety play in admission? This article takes a look at what progress is being made.
