Dan Tillapaugh presented the results of a follow up survey to the Tulane climate survey of sexual violence and harassment, originally conducted in 2017. Data was collected through in-depth interviews with students and faculty to gain a deeper understanding of the context behind the higher rates of sexual violence and harassment reported by LBTQ+ students. Tillapaugh said, “In particular with LGBTQ+ students, 33% reported being a victim of an attempted rape, and 31% reported being raped by a sexually violent perpatrator. I think it’s important to understand that’s pretty significant.”
