Title IX Campus Climate Survey

As part of our ongoing effort to make sure you feel welcome and safe at the University of Cincinnati, UC is participating in a pilot administration of the EAB Campus Climate Survey.

All students who were registered for classes in spring semester of 2015 received an email to their UC email address on March 23 with the subject line: "We Care" and a link to the survey about incidences of certain types of unwanted sexual and physical experiences in relationships on campus.

The purpose of the EAB Campus Climate Survey is to understand the scope and nature of sexual and intimate partner violence at UC, including student attitudes about and behaviors toward sexual violence and students’ knowledge of sexual misconduct policies and reporting procedures. This information is critical to tailoring sexual violence prevention education programming and to improving the campus response.

Some of the survey questions are personal and you may be emotionally impacted while answering them. At the end of the survey students will be given information about resources (found here) should you wish to talk with someone. Trigger warnings are included throughout the survey to alert you to potentially distressing material. All survey questions are optional and the participant can stop taking the survey at any time without penalty

The survey takes about 10-12 minutes to complete. We hope you take this opportunity to contribute to our understanding of a very important aspect of student life on campus. We are committed to ensuring a safe, healthy, and nondiscriminatory environment for our students. You can help us in our work to keep all students safe. Your responses will be completely anonymous and confidential. At the end of the survey, you can enter your name to be eligible to win one of five, $50 Amazon Gift cards (entry to win is at a separate site from the survey and your responses are not able to be linked to entry). To complete the survey, login to your UC email account and look for the email with the subject line "We Care: Campus Climate Student Survey"

If you have any questions about the survey, please email Title IX Coordinator Jyl Shaffer (jyl.shaffer@uc.edu) or Student Affairs Director of Assessment Heidi Pettyjohn (heidi.pettyjohn@uc.edu).
