Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Violence Prevention

Summary of 2019 campus Climate Survey on Sexual Violence Prevention

Consistent with New York State Education Law 129-B and policies of The State University of New York, College of Technology at Delhi participated in the 2019 University-wide Biennial SUNY Uniform Campus Climate Survey. The Survey gathered information about student and employee experience with sexual and interpersonal violence and knowledge of policies and resources. 444 students and 230 employees completed the survey, for response rates of 16% and 42%, respectively.

In the survey, 18.2 percent of female students, 13.3 percent of male students, and 0 percent of Gender Non-Binary students reported that they were subject to sexual harassment in the prior year. We have experienced an improvement in these rates since the 2017 survey. Additionally, 82 percent of students indicated familiarity with affirmative consent and 73 percent indicated that they knew where to report.

The College of Technology at Delhi, working with SUNY and community colleagues (including students, faculty, and staff), will use these data to improve response to violence, develop prevention programs, and will continue to study the issue. The next Climate Survey will be administered in the Spring Semester of 2021.
