With attention on sexual assault prevention at an all time high in the national media, campus officials are conducting a campus wide survey to assess the climate around sexual misconduct. According to a recent email from President Mark Schlissel, the surveys will be sent to randomly selected students via email in order to collect information that accurately represents the incidences of sexual assault on campus. The survey will also look at attitudes and beliefs surrounding the reporting process of the university and assess confidence in the university’s sexual misconduct policy.
