Clara Ell claims she was assaulted in her dorm room in Corrado Hall. “I’ll continue to speak out to elicit change” on campus, she said.  

 

 

Clara Ell has long felt sexual abuse and sexual assault needed more attention; one of the reasons the University of Portland freshman intends to major in social work and psychology is to help victims of such crimes. 

But on the evening of Sept. 30, Ell says she became a victim herself. After drinking heavily at a party, Ell claims she was raped in her dorm by a male classmate. Turning to her university for support and justice, Ell says she found neither.
