2 New England universities tied for most rapes on campus in 2014

In light of the Standford University rape case involving Division I swimmer, Brock Turner, rape has been a topic of conversation across social media platforms.

Although not all rapes are publicized to the scale of the Standford case, they still happen and they happen right here in New England.

Brown University and the University of Connecticut were tied for the most reports of rape on campus in 2014, The Boston Globe reported.

Close to 100 colleges and universities had at least 10 reports of rape in 2014 but Brown and UConn had 43 cases each.

Victim advocates say that the data means that more students are reporting their sexual assaults, and that the total reflects reports of rape, not the number of rape cases that are brought to court.
