Take a survey to share your perceptions on unwanted sexual contact and assault at Lawrence and help the Student Alliance Against Sexual Harassment and Assault (SAASHA)!

On March 31st, Dr. Kimberly Barrett will send an email with the subject line, “Lawrence students: Share your perspective on sexual assault and the campus climate,” inviting you to participate in the HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey.

This surveys will ask about your perceptions of Lawrence’s climate on unwanted sexual contact and sexual assault, your perceptions of how Lawrence addresses and responds to sexual assault, and whether and how often you have experienced unwanted sexual contact or sexual assault. The results of this survey will be used to inform and improve support, policies, and practices at Lawrence University; the information will not be used to investigate specific individuals or incidents. The survey will remain open until April 28th.

The survey is being administered by HEDS, an independent organization, and your responses will be anonymous to Lawrence. We will only receive data in which any survey information that might identify you has been removed. Participation in the HEDS Survey will enable comparison of results across universities, which will be a new opportunity for us to better understand the data.

Your input is essential!

To that end, Lawrence University will donate 25¢ for each survey completed to Student Alliance Against Sexual Harassment and Assault (SAASHA) if 225 students complete the survey. If 450 students complete the survey, Lawrence University will donate 50¢ for each survey completed to Student Alliance Against Sexual Harassment and Assault (SAASHA).
