Safer Campus Community Project Survey Underway

September 19, 2013

Please announce to your students The Safer Campus Community Project Survey, a campus-wide, anonymous online survey created by the HSU Sexual Assault Prevention Committee.  Students will receive a link to the survey via email on Sept. 24 and will have until Oct. 8 to complete the survey.

The survey will collect information about students’ experiences with sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking, and sexual harassment, as well as barriers to and levels of reporting and knowledge of support services for survivors. The gathering of this data is considered best practice by the US Department of Education and the Department of Justice, indicating a proactive approach to violence prevention on college campuses.

High levels of participation in this survey are needed for an accurate understanding of the scope of sexualized violence HSU students face. We are looking for all students to participate, regardless of whether or not someone has directly experienced these forms of violence. The data collected will enable the Sexual Assault Prevention Committee to develop prevention efforts and responses to violence that are based on our specific campus dynamics.

Attached to this message is an example statement about the survey you may announce in class or email to your students.

If you have any questions, or would like further information about the survey, please contact Mary Sue Savage at (707) 826-5123, or
