An Ethical and Legal Responsibility

Posted: February 18, 2019 in Uncategorized

Results from the University of Utah’s second sexual assault climate survey are now available. The U conducted its first survey on the topic in 2016. The most recent administration utilized the newly available American Association of Universities Survey, which will allow benchmarking with Pac-12 peers.

Because the new survey instrument used new questions, the ability to compare results to 2016’s benchmark data is limited. However, some questions from the inaugural survey remained the same, providing insights into changes on the U campus.

Results confirmed that sexual assault remains a problem and indicated that more people report experiencing sexual misconduct compared to the number of officially reported incidents. The survey also showed an increase in students’ actions related to sexual assault awareness and prevention while at the University of Utah compared to 2016.
