Why we need to increase rape awareness at UA

On our campus alone, UA instructors recently learned that two UA students were raped during the last five weeks.

In both cases, the alleged rapists were other UA students known by the victims. In at least one of the cases, it is suspected that date rape drugs were used. Evidence indicates that several male students worked together to perpetrate at least one of the rapes.

We have also received reports that female students are being sexually harassed by male students in Bierce Library. This is a violation of UA’s Student Conduct Code. Victims may report the incident using this online form.
