WMU welcoming students back from spring break with sexual misconduct survey

Western Michigan University is rolling out a new online training module to gather feedback from students on the school's sexual climate.

Western Michigan University is rolling out a new online training module to gather feedback from students on the school's sexual climate.

When WMU students return to school tomorrow, about 6,000 will be selected at random to take part in a survey about sexual misconduct awareness.

WMU is one of 60 campuses nationwide participating in this national survey through the Education Advisory Board.

Students will be invited to participate in a survey to gather input about their experiences, attitudes, and beliefs relating to sexual misconduct. The results will be used to address issues, improve services and raise awareness about campus resources available on campus.

The last survey conducted in 2016 revealed students felt safe and supported by staff when it came to sexual violence.

Director of Title IX compliance Felicia Crawford says this will give the university an opportunity to figure out what issues need focus.

“We think the best way to solve a problem is to better to understand it. So we just want to understand what our students think or feel about sexual misconduct. Do they feel the campus is helpful, do they think there are resources available?” Crawford said.

Organizers plan on doing it every two years to give the university time to review the results and make changes accordingly.
