SAPAC struggles with high number of assault reports

Dec. 8, 1992 — The number of sexual assaults reported to the University’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center were so high in 1992 that a small backlog of cases waiting for counseling developed, former SAPAC Director Debi Cain said. There were 56 incidents reported in the fall term alone.

Cain said that the increase in reported incidents was not necessarily because of increased sexual assaults on campus but that “more people are coming forward.”

Some SAPAC volunteers said victims were reporting incidents that took place seven to eight years earlier because they did not know there were help centers at the time.
