Emerson College develops survey to collect data on rapes on its campus

School is under US investigation

Emerson College said Tuesday that it will begin anonymously surveying students this fall to assess the prevalence of sexual assault on campus, a step many colleges have resisted despite pressure from lawmakers and advocates for victims.

The survey, scheduled to be rolled out in November, is one of several new measures the college will institute that are aimed at preventing and responding to sexual assaults, officials said.
