MIT invites all regular registered undergraduates and graduate students over 18 years of age to answer the 2019 AAU Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Misconduct.
The AAU Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Misconduct is a follow-up to MIT’s 2014 Community Attitudes on Sexual Assault. Similar to many of our peers, including Stanford, Harvard and Yale, we are running the core survey with a few questions added to expand our understanding of gender- and identity-based harassment.
The AAU survey will allow the Institute to measure the progress made to combat sexual misconduct in greater depth. This survey gives students a way to provide more information in a way that has no identifying information about an individual or a particular group connected to the individual survey response, or the final results.
