Everything you need to know about the upcoming climate survey

February 1, 2019
poster promoting the 2019 Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Misconduct reads COMING IN FEBRUARY. CHECK YOUR EMAIL. CLICK THE LINK. TAKE THE SURVEY. IT'S ANONYMOUS.

The University will soon ask all students to participate in a climate survey on sexual assault and misconduct, in partnership with the Association of American Universities (AAU). Universities use climate surveys to understand their students’ experiences with sexual violence, harassment, relationship violence, and other sexual misconduct in order to align resources and prevention efforts with the areas of greatest need.

Here are the key details:

  • All University of Rochester students—undergraduate or graduate students in any school or college—are encouraged to take the AAU Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Misconduct.
  • The survey link will be in your University email starting Monday, Feb. 4.
  • It should take about 20 minutes to complete.
  • Some students will receive a $5 Amazon gift card online after completing the survey (gift card recipients are randomly selected by the survey administrators).
  • It’s anonymous. The data will be analyzed by the research firm Westat, and then AAU will release aggregate results from participating universities and provide each institution with its own data set to decide how to share. The University’s results will be communicated broadly in fall 2019.
  • The survey ends on March 5.
“Sexual misconduct in higher education has rightfully been the subject of national dialogue recently, and the University has its attention focused on ensuring that we provide an inclusive, safe environment for students, and a Culture of Respect for everyone”

University President Richard Feldman

Achieving a good participation rate for this survey is really important to the University in order to fully understand the areas that need more resources or attention. Read more about the survey.

Additionally, beginning Feb. 11, students who present a photo/screenshot of the completed survey page, or who complete the survey at one of the tabling sessions below can receive $5 in cash (while supplies last at each event).
