In an effort to understand the scope and nature of sexual violence on its campuses,
the University of Houston System participated in a Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey
conducted by the Educational Advisory Board Company of 34 public and private institutions
in the United States during the spring 2016 and spring 2017 semesters. The anonymous,
online survey assesses students’ perceptions, behaviors, attitudes and experiences
with regard to sexual violence, whether on or off campus.
The UH System has charged each campus to evaluate their students’ level of awareness and perception of sexual violence. The information collected forms a baseline measurement. Ultimately, this self-assessment guides each campus in determining its need for resources to increase education and prevention and to accommodate those who have been exposed to sexual violence.
