Over a three-year period starting in 2011, Marquette reported a total of 30 sexual assaults to the federal government, but that only accounts for just over half of the sexual assaults that took place in its one square-mile patrol zone.

The Department of Public Safety reported 53 sexual assaults in its daily morning reports during the same time period represented in its reports to the U.S. Department of Education, an analysis of DPS’s documents shows.

This is the first article in a three-part series looking into the reporting of sexual assaults at Marquette. You can read the rest of the story here.

The second part of the series will publish April 28.
