We write to invite you to join a series of campus input sessions to discuss in depth the results of the 2022 Know More Campus Survey. During these sessions, members of the Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct Expert Advisory Workgroup will answer your questions about the data and collect feedback on improving services, prevention efforts and policies.
Based on the Know More Survey results, which we shared with the community in January, we know there are some things we are doing well. The survey results showed a decrease in some forms of RVSM. It also showed an increase in help-seeking in some areas and of those that sought out our services and resources to be valuable. This is good news, but there is still work to do. Specifically, we learned that we need to focus our efforts on services and prevention for members of our LGBTQIA+ communities and students, faculty and staff with disabilities.
We cannot express enough how invaluable your responses were to further understand the prevalence of relationship violence and sexual misconduct on our campus and the effectiveness of our help-seeking services and resources. Furthermore, your survey feedback will play a critical role in our strategic planning throughout this year.
To further connect with you on these important matters, we will be offering four campus input sessions — two in-person and two virtual — that are open to all students, faculty and staff. Please add these dates to your calendar:
Please come to these sessions prepared to discuss the survey report, ask questions and share input on future efforts.
Again, we appreciate your engagement in this process, and we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming session.
Thank you for all you do,
