On January 22, 2014, President Obama announced the creation of a Task Force to Protect Students From Sexual Assault. The Task Force was announced in conjunction with the release of a report on rape and sexual assault from the White House Council on Women and Girls. The report, titled Rape and Sexual Assault: A Renewed Call to Action, calls attention to the particular problem of campus sexual assaults:
• 1 in 5 women has been sexually assaulted while in college;
• only 12 percent of student victims report the assault to law enforcement;
• most college victims are assaulted by some- one they know; and
• alcohol and drugs contribute to many sexual assaults on campus.
