2019 Climate Survey & Translations
It is the University’s responsibility to provide a safe, supportive environment where students can achieve academic success and personal growth. Unfortunately, the issue of sexual assault and gender-based violence is prevalent on college campuses nationwide. The University of Hawaii has made significant progress towards addressing this critical problem, but we can do more.
Campus climate surveys are important tools that are used to help colleges prevent sexual assault and other forms of gender-based violence. These surveys measure the prevalence of gender-based violence on campus and gauge students’ attitudes and behaviors.
In January 2017, UH launched a climate survey on sexual harassment and gender-based violence across all ten campuses. The survey gave students an opportunity to share their experiences and perceptions on how sexual misconduct on their campus.
The University is launching a second climate survey on January 22, 2019 to continue monitoring the issue of campus sexual harassment and gender-based violence.
