On college campuses, not only is the rate among the highest, it has traditionally been the most covered up to protect college's reputations. In January 2014, the White House released a report and created The White House Task Force on Protecting Students From Sexual Assault. Some of it's objectives are to:

- Make sure institutions "comply fully" with their legal obligations in the area.
- Broaden public awareness of individual colleges' compliance with relevant laws.
