Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Misconduct and Relationship Violence

 

 AAU Report: Combating Sexual Misconduct

The Association of American Universities (AAU) has published a report on the actions its members, including Ohio State, are taking to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct and relationship violence on their campuses. The report notes that Ohio State has administered a campus climate survey for three years in a row, beginning in 2015. It credits Ohio State with using the information to advance the work of the Buckeyes ACT program and for using the data to track progress and supplement services and support. The report says, “Surveying the campus community helps the university document campus sexual assault and sexual harassment in order to make informed decisions on how to address it.”

 

Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Misconduct and Relationship Violence

A campus climate survey on sexual misconduct and relationship violence was available February 5 through March 10. Ensuring a safe and healthy campus climate for all members of the university community is Ohio State’s top priority. Students were encouraged to complete the survey as information collected will allow the university to inform and further enhance Buckeyes ACT, Ohio State’s comprehensive plan to combat sexual misconduct and relationship violence. Participation was voluntary, and once the survey was submitted, responses were completely anonymous. Results will be released in the fall.
