Campus Climate Survey
In May of 2015, Northwestern launched its first student campus climate survey on sexual misconduct. The survey contained questions related to sexual misconduct incidence, attitudes, and awareness of resources. A report containing the results of the survey was published on September 28, 2015. The Campus Climate Survey report is available for you to view.
After reviewing the report, the Title IX Coordinating Committee, the Campus Coalition on Sexual Violence (CCSV) Climate Survey Working Group, and Associated Student Government's "It's on Us" Committee each submitted recommendations in Winter 2016 for consideration of the administration. A June 20, 2016 report Campus Climate Survey: From Recommendations to Actions summarizes recommendations and key action steps Northwestern is taking to strengthen sexual misconduct response, resources, and prevention initiatives. These recommendations and action steps are part of an ongoing effort by Northwestern to promote a safe and supportive campus for all members of the community.
