Data Shows Number Of Reported OSU Campus Rapes Increasing

Ohio State University records show the number of rapes reported on campus have increased since 2015. 

Records show 56 reported rapes on campus in 2016, 72 in 2017 and 93 in 2018. 2019 is also expected to see an increase. A campus climate survey conducted this year shows a growing percentage of students know how to make a report and how the university defines sexual assault and misconduct.
