"The Association of American Universities on Monday released the overall results of a survey that asked students at 27 universities about their experiences with sexual assault and sexual misconduct, drawing responses from more than 150,000 students. More than 20 percent of female undergraduates at an array of prominent universities said this year they were victims of sexual assault and misconduct, echoing findings elsewhere, according to one of the largest studies ever of college sexual violence."

Dept of Justice report from Dec 2014, so pretty contemporaneous.

http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/rsavcaf9513.pdf

Rate for students, from the highlights section, 0.61%.  

Given the rates in the AAU report, one wonders what will be done by the schools to actually stop the assaults before they happen rather than punish afterwards.
