On Monday, April 13, UW-Madison students received a confidential survey asking about the campus climate of sexual assault and sexual misconduct. The results will guide policies to encourage a healthy, safe, and nondiscriminatory environment at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and we want to hear from each and every student.
Jeanette Kowalik, the Director of Prevention Services and Campus Health Initiatives at University Health Services (UHS), is the university coordinator for the survey. “We have an incredible opportunity to hear from all students to shape future campus policies and services. We want a campus community where everyone can feel safe,” says Kowalik.
The survey has had a great response thus far, and Kowalik hopes to hear from every student.
- The survey is voluntary and confidential; disclosing information about experiences will not be considered a report to the university
- Student responses will be compiled and shared in aggregate only; individual responses will never be shared in a way that identifies an individual
- Participants who complete the survey may receive a $5 Amazon gift card
- Participants will be entered into a $500 drawing for visiting the survey site, regardless of whether or not they complete the survey
- More information can be found at uhs.wisc.edu/aausurvey.html
Results of the survey will be communicated with the campus community later this fall.
