Take it from me, a psychiatrist: Duke has a serious sexual assault problem

(09/03/19 4:00am)

Welcome to Duke, both new and returning students.  Before you arrived, you watched a video training about sexual assault; you will get talks about alcohol and drugs, too.  You may have taken it seriously, or you may have texted with friends, scrolled through your Insta account or watched some Netflix at the same time. You may have experienced some of the things they described before coming to Duke. Or, you may not think it will happen to you. 

Duke's rate of sexual assault is a campus health emergency

(03/08/19 11:00am)

In a recent article in The Chronicle, the results of a survey given to Duke undergraduates in 2018 showed that almost 48 percent of women respondents at Duke were sexually assaulted, a number which does not include coerced sexual contact and sexual harassment. This is unacceptable. Imagine if almost 50 percent of students contracted an illness which affected their health, school performance, and may impact the rest of their lives. If this were anything but sexual assault, it would have been seen and addressed as a public health and campus emergency.
