The United States Congress should require all universities to report rape counts that happen on campus, because it is morally correct to do, and will vouch additional funds to those who obey.

Target: The United States Congress,

The safety of our country’s youth has been deteriorating and this is even more present with only 10 percent of colleges accurately reporting the amount of rape cases that occur on campus (AAUW, 2014). This in turn is socially, as well as economically hurting universities everywhere as disclosing the incorrect number of rapes translates to a value decrease in the college’s quality.

In order to solve this issue, colleges should be faced with a higher loss, such as complete withdrawal of financial support from the government, which may trigger a more aggressive change to protect their students and reputation.

To guarantee this plan’s application, Congress should require colleges to provide rape counts every six months, to ensure the information is current, and to notice campus assault trends. Additionally, colleges should provide required programs that teach students about what to do if they become involved in a sexual harassment case. With these implications put into place, there is a likelihood of less campus rapes occurring due to the stronger emphasis on rape education. This new law also would benefit the people of the college as it will be a simple and hassle-free addition to the curriculum, which would increase the likelihood of new programs for rape education functioning in the near future.
