A new survey revealed the startling pervasiveness of sexual violence on 33 university campuses across the country.

The Association of American Universities 2019 Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Misconduct was released on Tuesday and shows that 1 in 4 female undergrads report that they have been sexually assaulted on campus. This is an increase from the 2015 survey.

Over 181,000 students from 33 colleges and universities participated in the survey, including the University of Arizona.

To talk about this survey and what’s behind the increase, The Show reached out to Scott Clement, the polling director at the Washington Post.
