Understanding and Responding to Campus Sexual Assault:

Comprehensive Campus Climate Assessment

In 2014, Rutgers University was asked by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault to pilot a campus climate survey tool developed by the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women. During the 2014–2015 academic year, researchers from the Center on Violence Against Women and Children engaged in a comprehensive campus climate assessment project at Rutgers University–New Brunswick entitled “ #iSPEAK”. Campus climate surveys were also administered at Rutgers - Newark and Rutgers - Camden in 2015-2016. A modified version of the survey was re-administered on all three campuses in 2018.
