A campus-wide survey of safety at the University of Kentucky ranges from perceptions of safety to stalking to reporting of sexual assaults.  UK officials believe the Lexington school is among the first in the country to undertake a mandatory survey of these issues.  UK President Eli Capilouto says the findings indicate many students remain reluctant to report sexual assaults.  “Too many students, too many still believe that sexual assault is a shame and a scorn that they cannot share,” said Capilouto.
