Campus Climate Survey and Annual Data Reporting


SDSU's Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct


History

Following recommendations from the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault (2014), an anonymous survey was first developed in 2015 that included questions about sexual assault/violence on or near campus, attitudes about sexually related violence, inclination to intervene/help in response to sexual violence, and awareness of sexual violence related services and policies. SDSU continues to adminster this survey, with the next administration scheduled for Spring 2022. Results from these surveys provide a valuable resource to help SDSU better assess and address the problem of sexual violence at SDSU.

Pass the word along
-- The Sexual Violence Campus Climate Survey launched on Monday, April 4, 2022! Designed in collaboration with the SDSU Sexual Violence Task Force and Campus Climate Survey Committee, the goals of the 2022 survey are to provide information about the prevalence of sexual violence and relationship violence on campus, students’ knowledge about reporting policies and resources for survivors, and students’ attitudes related to sexual violence and relationship violence. Results from this survey will be used to further develop prevention and intervention programming aimed at ending sexual violence and relationship violence in the SDSU community.

Participants have a chance to enter a drawing for a set of Apple AirPods Pro! Additionally, those who are first to complete the survey will each receive a $10 gift card to Trader Joe's (limited quantities). For more information, see the survey link in your email, sent on April 4.

 

Frequently Asked Questions - The 2022 Survey

It is important that we hear directly from students on the topics of sexual violence and relationship violence. The information gathered from the 2022 survey will be integral in further developing policies, and prevention and intervention programming aimed at ending sexual violence and relationship violence for the SDSU community.
All enrolled SDSU students at the San Diego and Imperial Valley campuses have been invited to participate in the survey.
The survey launched on Monday, April 4, 2022, and is scheduled to close on Friday, May 13, 2022.
On April 4, SDSU students were emailed at their email addresses, which were provided by the University. The email invitation will contain a unique weblink to access the survey. Students who have not participated in the survey will be reminded throughout the survey period about accessing the survey.

Although all students are sent invitations via their SDSU-provided email addresses, once the data are collected, all personally identifying information (including email addresses provided to claim incentives) will be removed from the data before it is analyzed for the final report. Responses will not be able to be linked back to the individual. Only depersonalized, aggregate (group-level) data will be analyzed for the final report.

SDSU has contracted with the Social Science Research Lab to distribute the survey. The lab has been involved with this project since 2015. 

Given the topic, we acknowledge that some questions may prompt some discomfort. Please remember - your participation in the survey, as well as how you participate, is completely voluntary. All responses to the survey are anonymous and not associated with your personal information. You can also skip questions and/or opt out of the survey at any time.
Yes - however you must come back to the survey using the unique link provided in your email invitation and also use the same device as when you started the survey.
If you have technical difficulties with the survey, please contact Dipthi Battapadi (Social Science Research Lab) at [email protected]
For any questions or concerns related to the survey, please contact Principal Investigator, Dr. Mary Joyce Juan at [email protected]
We welcome everyone to spread the word about this university-wide survey! Share this link widely and tell SDSU students to check their emails for their unique survey weblink.
SDSU is proud to have several resources for survivors of sexual and relationship violence, as well as for those looking to be more active in their support. Resources will be provided at the end of the survey and can also be accessed through Title IX's website (also see top of this page for Resources pull-down menu).
