The horrifying statistics on rape and sexual assault on college campuses in this country speak for themselves. Studies show that about one in five undergraduate women has experienced such an attack or an attempted attack at some point during their college years, but only 12 percent of incidents are reported. Why is justice so difficult to find in what is supposed to be a protected and enlightened atmosphere of a college or university? Advocates say there are numerous institutional barriers that discourage reporting, including administrators who treat reports of sexual assault with disbelief and on-campus judicial systems that are difficult for a victim to navigate.

RECENTLY I wrapped up the "I am the dad of a high school wrestler" stage of my life. Like most matters connected with high school wrestling, my goodbye was intense and long-lasting. It stretched over three weekends. First there was a conference tournament, a spirited two-day affair held at Mount St. Joseph in West Baltimore. Next there was a state tournament, an even noisier two-day drama held at McDonogh in Owings Mills. Then there was the National Prep School Wrestling Championships held last weekend at Lehigh University outside Allentown, Pa. This was an eight-mat extravaganza that lasted either three days or an eternity, depending on how your back felt after you had been sitting in the stands.

According to a recent White House report, one out of every five young women is victimized by a sexual assault during her college years. Yet nearly half those crimes are never reported to school officials or to police. Only about 12 percent of students formally report a sexual assault on campus, investigators found, with the result that such acts have become one of the most underreported crimes against college women. That is why Del. Jon S. Cardin, a Baltimore County Democrat and candidate for attorney general, has introduced legislation in this year's General Assembly that would require Maryland's colleges and universities to conduct anonymous surveys among women students in order to determine how commonly incidents of sexual assault actually occur on the state's campuses.

As a suspected gunman walked across Towson University, officials sent an emergency notification through text alert, email and Twitter to some 25,000 students and faculty, warning them of the man's whereabouts and advising them to "stay in a safe location. " The situation ended peacefully. The "gunman" was a student carrying a theater prop — a university spokeswoman called the incident "much ado about nothing. " But until the circumstances were cleared up, the alert had the campus community on edge.
