Climate Survey

CAMPUS CLIMATE SURVEY

Consistent with New York State Education Law 129-B and policies of The State University of New York, SUNY Polytechnic Institute participated in the 2019 University-wide Biennial SUNY Uniform Campus Climate Survey. The Survey gathered information about student and employee experience with sexual and interpersonal violence and knowledge of policies and resources.

The survey was administered by SUNY System Administration via email to 2,810 students and 1,071 employees.  563 students and 207 employees completed the survey, for response rates of 20% and 19%, respectively.

In the survey,
22% (47 survey participants) of students who identified as women, 10% (26 survey participants) of students who identified as men, and 60% (6 survey participants) of students who identified as Gender Non-Binary reported that they were subject to sexual harassment in the prior year.
11% (23 survey participants) of students who identified as women and 4% (11 survey participants) of students who identified as men reported that they were subject to sexual assault (excluding rape) in the prior year.
2% (8 survey participants) of student survey participants reported that they were subject to rape in the prior year.
90% of students indicated familiarity with affirmative consent, 84% indicated that they knew how to report sexual assault to SUNY Poly, and 63% indicated they knew how to find the Title IX Coordinator.

SUNY Polytechnic Institute, working with SUNY and community colleagues (including students, faculty, and staff), will use this data to improve our response to violence and develop additional prevention programs.  SUNY Poly will also continue to study this information to help improve our policies, their implementation and inform us about additional potential resources for individuals who may experience sexual and interpersonal violence. The next Climate Survey will be administered in the Spring Semester of 2021. More information about the Survey is available at www.suny.edu/climatesurvey.

If you have questions about the survey, or would like to provide additional feedback, please contact Katie Tynan-Simon, Title IX Coordinator at 315-792-7235, 518-956-7317 or ktynan@sunypoly.edu.
