Survey benefits campus safety policies
The Office of Equal Opportunity/Title IX released a Campus Safety Climate survey Monday, Oct. 26.
This voluntary, anonymous survey was sent to a random selection of 1,800 students from Washburn University and Washburn Institute of Technology.
To be eligible to take part in the survey one had to be at least 18 years of age as of Oct. 1 of this year.
The survey’s purpose is to target intervention strategies and reduce sexual violence incidents from occurring on campus.
By participating in this survey Washburn will be able to develop programming and policies to better suit the needs of all Washburn personnel.
Survey questions may include, but are not limited to information involving gender, ethnicity and beliefs about sexual and physical violence.
The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and all answers will remain anonymous.
Thank you in advance for taking time to voice your opinion in this important survey.
If you have questions, call Pam Foster at (785) 670-1509.
