The University of Iowa conducts its third campus safety survey on sexual misconduct.
The University of Iowa is conducting its third campus survey to examine sexual misconduct occurring on campus, including sexual harassment, dating violence, stalking, and sexual violence. Students can complete the survey on their computer or smartphone.
All degree-seeking undergraduate, graduate, and professional students will receive an email invitation to complete the Speak Out Iowa 2021 online survey on Tuesday, February 2nd. The survey, which takes about 15 minutes to complete, examines 1) the frequency of sexual misconduct (technology-facilitated sexual harassment, harassment by faculty/staff, dating violence, stalking, and sexual violence) among students; 2) students’ experiences supporting a friend who disclosed sexual misconduct to them; 3) how sexual misconduct affects students’ academic progress; and 4) how students negotiate sexual consent.
Students’ participation is voluntary, and responses are anonymous. All UI students are encouraged to participate.
The UI conducted the most recent Speak Out Iowa survey in 2017 and findings helped inform the UI Anti-Violence Plan. Survey results will be used to continue to inform our ongoing efforts to address sexual misconduct on campus.
