Student Climate Survey FAQs

We have launch a survey of students to answer the following questions: How often does sexual violence happen on campus? When it does happen, what are the consequences and to whom do students turn for help and support?  What do students know about sexual violence and the resources available to prevent, counsel, and support those who experience sexual violence? How do students feel about BU’s response to sexual violence?

Answers to these questions will help BU provide better support for people who have experienced sexual violence develop policies and prevention tools to reduce the frequency of sexual violence in our community and gauge the campus climate regarding sexual misconduct among students.
