Survivors of Sexual Violence

While sexual harassment and assault most commonly occur when men perpetrating acts against women, we know that this is not unique to only heterosexual dyads and that survivors of sexual violence come from many identities. While not an exhaustive discussion on survivor identities, the 2015 UM Climate Survey includes the following data: 11.4 % of all UM students reported some form of non-consensual sexual behavior - including 22.5% of undergrad females and 6.8 % of undergrad males. The same survey reported Females were nearly 8 times more at risk than males, Undergraduates were 3 times more at risk than graduate students. Lesbian, gay or bisexual students were 2.5 times more at risk than heterosexual students. Underrepresented minority students were 2 times more at risk than white students (SOURCE).
