Senator Gillibrand is sponsoring legislation to try to reduce the rape epidemic on college campuses.
Right now there are no incentives for colleges to report these crimes or to make sure that justice is done,'' the New York Democrat said in an interview. "Their incentive today is to make sure they are not known as a rape school. And the financial penalty is so low that they don't report the cases to the Department of Education.
Gillibrand notes that currently the risk of sexual assault at a college is quite high.
“[T]he price of a college education should not include a 1 in 5 chance of being sexually assaulted. America’s colleges and universities are the best in the world,” Gillibrand said in a statement. “But it is simply unacceptable that they become havens for rape and sexual assault. It is time to take this crisis head on and end the scourge of sexual assault on our college campuses, hold offenders accountable, and keep our students safe.”
