About the 2021 Survey
The University of Iowa conducts its third campus safety survey on sexual misconduct.
The University of Iowa is conducting its third campus safety survey to examine sexual misconduct occurring on campus, including sexual harassment, dating violence, stalking, and sexual violence.
All degree-seeking undergraduate, graduate, and professional students will receive an email invitation to complete the Speak Out Iowa online survey beginning February 2, 2021. The survey, which takes about 15 minutes to complete, asks students about the frequency of sexual misconduct (technology-facilitated, sexual harassment, harassment by faculty/staff, dating violence, stalking and sexual violence); students' experiences supporting a friend who has disclosed sexual misconduct to them; how sexual misconduct affects students' academic progress; how students negotiate sexual content. Students’ participation is voluntary and responses are anonymous. All UI students are encouraged to participate.
The UI conducted the first Speak Out Iowa survey in 2015 and the second survey in 2017. Findings from both surveys helped inform the current UI Anti-Violence Plan. Results from 2021 survey will be made public and will be used to continue to inform our ongoing efforts to address sexual misconduct on campus.
