Campus sexual assault story about to break?


From a statement just released by Dean of Students Lori Berquam:

Members of the UW-Madison community,

In coming days, there will be a great deal of media and online coverage of sexual assault in our community and around the UW System.

Reading these stories reminds us of the importance of the work we are doing to try to prevent these horrible acts, to respond in victim-centered ways and to seek accountability from those who would perpetrate them.

Is there a big campus sexual assault story that is about to break? It would only make sense that a statement like this would be released in the midst of an accompanying scandal.

    There already has been one, from the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.

    I’d guess it was because of this report:

    “The report by Kristin Jones of the Center for Public Integrity, the same organization that found in December that over 95% of college rape victims never report their assault, tells the story of University of Wisconsin rape victim Laura Dunn and her failed attempts to get justice first from her school, and then from the U.S. Department of Education.”
