In fall 2017, the University of Iowa conducted the second iteration of its Speak Out Iowa campus climate survey. We thank the students who took the time to complete the survey, as their input continues to be at the core of our comprehensive strategy to respond to sexual misconduct, dating violence, and stalking on our campus.

Survey data have been used to inform a new three-year campus plan developed by the Anti-Violence Coalition. The plan was created in collaboration with a wide spectrum of campus stakeholders, including student leaders and shared governance representatives. The UI has a committed team working collaboratively to prevent sexual misconduct and violence, provide support to survivors, and hold offenders accountable. We will continue to tailor our efforts to address specific campus needs, including seeking input from those impacted, rather than using a one-size fits all approach.

Sharing these results is another opportunity to engage the entire campus community in the conversation about this important issue. We’re committed to continuing to improve the campus climate for everyone, and we ask for your help in creating a safe and healthy environment.
