Sexual assaults on college campuses drastically underreported

(WFLX) - Colleges and universities are failing to safeguard students when it comes to sexual assaults on campus. That's according to a report released by Senator Claire McCaskill, a democratic senator from Missouri.

She says Wednesday's report will help design legislation that will be introduced in Congress by the end of the summer.

The latest report from the Justice Department says less than five percent of rape victims attending college report their attacks to law enforcement.
