Sexual Violence on Campus: Implementing a Climate Survey and Follow-up Action Plan

Monday, August 8, 2016 12:00PM ET


As administrators continue to develop institution-specific programs to address sexual assault on college campuses, many have considered launching “campus climate surveys” to better understand the scope of the issues and assist with education, training, and student services. In 2014, Rutgers University was invited by the White House to pilot a sample survey made available by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. The survey collected 23,000 students responses, after being revised and tested at nine colleges and universities (including public, private and community colleges). Join experts from Rutgers University and the U.S. Department of Justice, who will share the results of a final technical report of the survey, discuss best practices, and discuss how colleges and universities can utilize this free resource to develop their own institution-specific campus climate survey. Speakers will also discuss how to use the results to develop a follow-up action plan to improve campus sexual assault prevention and response efforts.
