We share our case data to increase transparency and provide insight into the university’s response process. Sharing data helps us work with campus partners to identify potential action for our prevention, policy, or intervention work. OSMRC case data provides one piece of the larger picture of incidents of sexual misconduct, dating/domestic violence, and stalking impacting our campus and community. It fits together with data from the Department of Public Safety, Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity, Office of the Dean of Students, RVAP, Domestic Violence Intervention Program, and Speak Out Iowa campus climate survey. 


About our data

The data in this section reflect reports that were received by OSMRC between January 1, 2017, and December 31, 2017. The data do not reflect Clery crime statistics, which can be found in the Annual Security Report published by the Department of Public Safety. While many of these reports refer to incidents that happened in the context of a person’s affiliation to the University of Iowa, OSMRC also receives reports about incidents that happened off campus or before a person came to the university. These reports are also included in the data shared in this section.
