ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - More than 10 percent of students responding to a survey at Michigan State University and the University of Michigan say they’ve experienced unwanted sexual contact through force or incapacitation.

The results were released Monday as part of a national survey of students at more than two dozen universities last spring.

At Michigan State, 13.2 percent of 8,350 students said they experienced sexual contact without consent that involved force or possibly alcohol or drugs. At U-M, it was 14.6 percent of 6,700 students who responded to the survey.

Among undergraduate women in the survey, 30.3 percent were in that category at U-M; 24.8 percent at Michigan State.

Officials at both schools say the survey results will help them confront a serious national issue.
