University of Colorado Boulder - 2017

1 in 5 women are sexually assaulted in college. According to the University of Colorado 2016 Sexual Misconduct Survey, 28% of female undergraduates said they have been sexually assaulted while in college. While these statistics are shockingly large, it is an issue seldom discussed or addressed due to social stigmas and biases. I am creating an online interactive reporting tool that maps out instances of sexual assault in Boulder. This live map will help identify trends that make the issue of sexual assault more visible. As a result, victims/survivors may also be connected to support and services and the community at large may be motivated to take a stance against sexual assault.
